The Third Earth

Book 5 – The Beta-Earth Chronicles Book Series

cover The Third Earth

For twenty years, Dr. Malcolm Renbourn and Tribe Renbourn faced adventure after adventure, struggle after struggle on Beta-Earth.

Now, Renbourn and five of his Betan wives are forced to cross the multi-verse once again, this time to the strange world called Cerapin-Earth. After startling and frightening physical transformations, the altered Renbourns meet two new kinds of humanity. One is the dominant pairs who are able to share thoughts and sensations at the same time. The other are the nams, single-bodied people the pairs deem defective mono-minds. As a result, nams are exiled from the overpopulated cities of pyramid hives.

Tribe Renbourn must join the outcasts and teach them they are as worthy of love and acceptance as any unkind pair. But helping the nams learn how to stand up for themselves ultimately leads to a catastrophic war. At the same time, Cerapin scientists plan another multi-versal jump that must also end in a costly disaster. Along the way, two sexy spies complicate everything.

On a world where technology is worshiped like a religion, how can the nam rebels overcome the superior armaments of the pairs using primitive weaponry? While this conflict brews, Tribe Renbourn explores what it means to be human in ways they never expected. Will their epic end like it began, forced to sacrifice themselves to save a doomed city?

Lisa ~ New Ideas, Great Story, and Thoughtful! ~ Reviewed in the United States on February 16, 2019 – “This book is my favorite of the series so far!
Wesley Britton has an imagination that has created worlds and situations I haven’t seen anyone create before. New ideas, worlds, characters – it’s great! And yet, with all these new situations and conditions, there is a great story there. Third World changes everything for the Renbourns; literally and figuratively. The way of life on this world is different, perhaps even more different that the “Tribe” lifestyle of Beta Earth. First, there is the great change on arrival in this world – physically – for more than just Malcolm. Then the discovery of the entirely different populace. I don’t want to be more specific and give away the surprise and fun you will have reading it, so I’ll leave it here. One more thought – this book continues to address issues common in our society – especially prejudices, and the idea that one way of living is better than the other. So there it is – new ideas, great story, thoughtful.”

Steven Troly ~ Jan. 27, 2018 – “After a slow start, The Third Earth steadily increased in pace until I wouldn’t put it down, paranoid that the story might keep going whether I was there to read it or not. However, the book is very detail-heavy, and has more of the feel of a series’ first book that is looking to set up books that come after it, rather than the feel of a series’ fifth book.
Both of those things aside, my only real complaint is that the book was over too quickly to really get to know the characters in their new setting.”
