Lazantis Rising
World Leaders, Benevolent Aliens
by Ursula Dyck

Ushaya Landau, sixty-four and recently retired from Trends & Styles magazine company, is looking forward to finally having time to visit her kids, see friends, and relish her gardens...until she is visited by a host of alien titans from the world of Lazantis. These creatures give her the ability to gift others with superpowers—and change her life forever. Armed with her new ability and the responsibility that comes with it, Ushaya decides to impart powers on eighteen world leaders. But if she hopes having powers will transform the way politics works, she is sorely mistaken. This satirical, allegorical fantasy is nothing short of a political parody, following Ushaya and the world leaders through trade negotiations, politics, social issues, and environmental concerns. When they discover that there is more to these benevolent aliens than meets the eye, will they be able to put their petty differences aside and work together to save the world?

Ursula Dyck has taken a winding road through life, along eclectic spiritual and mystical paths, to discover both who she is and who she is still becoming. One fork in the road led her through the psychic arts and spiritual development, and another inspired her to pursue a Legal Secretary diploma at Camosun College in Victoria, B.C. After working as a legal secretary for many years, she took a position with the provincial government’s Ministry of Education. That piqued her interest in politics, in a quiet sort of way. Her combined life experiences exploring psychic arts and the mysteries of life, coupled with working for a provincial ministry and learning about politics, inspired this book. Dyck has previously self-published a palmistry booklet called Palmistry Course—Beginner’s Guide.
