Nebador - the incredible journey of five young adults from poverty and oppression to respected citizenship in the wide universe ...
This epic young-adult science fiction adventure continues as the women of a mysterious mountain monastery rescue the group and allow them to witness their most sacred ritual. One student fails the ultimate test, and Ilika makes the biggest mistake of his life. Finally, the selection is made and the new crewmembers learn the basics on their ship, even as the priests stir up the people against them.
Selection is the third book in the Nebador series. These stories are filled with wit-sharpening and skill-honing challenges - mental, emotional, and spiritual - for both the characters and the reader. It is truly a grand adventure in which the characters come to understand a beloved saying of the Nebador Transport Service: Personal power is the ability to stand on your own two feet, with a smile on your face, in the middle of a universe that contains a million ways to crush you.
