Far Arena (Part Five of the Okal Rel Saga)
One thousand years in the future...
Two descendant races of humanity square off over their political differences as Sevolite Prince Amel’s life hangs in the balance.
The neo-feudal Sevolites finally acknowledge the vulnerable but civilized people of the Reetion Confederacy as independent commoners.
The supposedly enlightened Reetions prove however, that they are far from being the harmless pacifists they claim to be — this sophisticated society run by incorruptible Artificial Intelligence is prepared to do anything to ensure its own survival!

Praise for the writing of Lynda Williams
“The Okal Rel Saga is culturally complex and politically tangled, an epic tale of clashing civilizations and worldviews.” — Dru Pagliassotti, The Harrow
“Plenty of action with great world building and well-written characters. This one is a keeper. And made me want more of the Okal Rel universe.” — Pam Allan, ConNotations Magazine
“It must be said that the richness and vibrancy of the entire universe Williams has created is so intricate and well-planned that sometimes, it takes a couple of readings to get your head completely around some of the sub-themes and off-screen action. That being said, each time you read one of these books, it’s a different journey, a different experience; almost a different story…” — Nathalie Mallett, author, The Princes of the Golden Cage
“With a great universe, full and life-like characters, spellbinding story line, Lynda Williams’ books are a must read for any person who enjoys a GOOD sci-fi novel.” — Ky Leishner, Amazon.com
“...If readers enjoys fast-moving complicated plots, swordplay, relationships, and a setting involving different worlds and space opera, they should be well satisfied.” — Ronald Hore, CM Magazine
“Reading your words was a wonderful treat and a reward for completing the first year of my Masters. You have created massively complicated and intricate societies. I was entranced by the characters and blown away by the action. What a delight your books were to read. Thank you for sharing your imagination with the rest of us!" - Barbara Coupe
"Far Arena is my first read in the Okal Rel Saga, the fifth book by Lynda Williams in her series. My decision: I want to start the series and read all the books! Although new to Okal Rel, it was easy for me to see why the books are so popular and highly praised. Williams has the rare ability to develop her characters, show us the story, maintain tension, and do all three at the same time. The characters are deep and intricate. The story moves quickly; the pages keep turning. The universe is unique and developed in impressive detail. I found the conclusion of the book to be very satisfying, leaving me wanting to read the previous books. The final chapter of the book is compelling. It told me more about the intriguing character Di Mon, and I could not help wondering how things all began. If you've read one or more of the previous books in this series, you'll love Far Arena. And if, like me, this is your first dip in, you've got five guaranteed good reads waiting for you. You can't go wrong with Far Arena.” — Mark Shegelski , Amazon.com
