The Search
by John M. Jefferson

For over 900 years after The Disaster, the poorly understood event that almost destroyed civilization, the island of Gista has had no outside contact. Many believe Gista and the Great Ocean are the whole of the world of Neptu. But fueled by the visions of Kaiah, a prophetess, and spurred on by Cat, a mysterious creature, who appears only as a hologram, a great sailing ship, the Simdar, sets off in search of other lands and peoples. With each landfall the group learns more about their remote past as they are drawn into violent conflicts and face unimaginable dangers. Gista, however, is split between two nations, with an uneasy peace that can't last forever. While Simdar and her crew are making astonishing discoveries on their quest, they come to learn that war has erupted at home and they are pawns in a complex contest that will determine the fate of the entire human race. With meticulous world building, fascinating mythologies, compelling characters, and imaginative, high-stakes action, The Search weaves fantasy and science-fiction together in a gripping, forward-moving plot that will captivate fans of both genres.

John M. Jefferson began college as an English major, a background that led to the creation of some of the languages of Neptu. He developed an interest in history in college as well, which fuels much of The Search’s characters’ quest to learn about their past. A career as a computer programmer and a passion for science fiction led to the creation of the good and evil forces and the complex and imaginative technologies underlying the story. John is a resident of Madras, Oregon. The Search is the first book in the Devistor series.
