The Voyage synopsis
Tony takes a holiday down at his cottage on the south coast of Cornwall, ready to enjoy some peace and quiet by the sea. On his first day there he meets Vera and the two hit it off over dinner at Vera’s house that evening. However, the comfortable evening is shattered when mysterious noises and strange figures start appearing in Vera’s cottage. The two make a run to Tony’s house, only to find themselves followed there by human-like transparent figures.
They awake to find themselves onboard the Guardian Ship, being transported to Vluvidium. They soon discover that this new and exciting world they are being taken to will be their home and they will be unable to return to Earth.
Yet, despite their upheaval, Tony and Vera happily settle into their new lives, absorbed by the technology and people of Vluvidium. They build friendships, relationships and expand their knowledge and evolve beyond the human race, knowing that life will never be the same again. And all the while, this perfect world they have entered is under threat from Tovian invasion, another race who want to strike the greatest bargain of all – to take the Earth.
