The Brain Changers is set in the technologically near future and the basic mood and thrust of the story is fantasy involving higher beings, magical interventions, and mystical philosophy. A good Young Adult story with well drawn characters.” —Ian Watson, science fiction author and screenwriter of Speilberg’s A.I. Artificial Intelligence

Book Description
Dark, uncanny forces begin to take over the land. Rowena and her friends see their freedoms being eroded as their society succumbs to a new breed of dominators, the Brain Changers. Can the small student group stand alone in their protests in a world rapidly becoming riddled with fear and suspicion? Dare they attempt to discredit a tyrannical and all-powerful government? The protest that begins so boldly brings death and destruction in its wake, but it is the selfless and courageous act of the young heroine who risks her life to foil a powerful and dastardly enemy that is its justification.

“A powerful read. I really cared about Rowena, Mel and their mates and wanted to keep on reading.”
—Sally Spedding, author and lecturer in creative writing, Leicester University
