A recent BBC article – “Thousands of Darfur refugees remain displaced in Chad” – investigates the troubling issue of the overwhelming number of refugees from Darfur, an issue which, unfortunately, effects many parts of the world. Exploring the idea of refugees in her new novel “Ài's Journal: Galaxy 22 – Book 1” (published by AuthorHouse), The Kite – the pen name used by an anonymous author – takes readers on an intergalactic and interdimensional journey.

Ai, of the 22nd galaxy, embarks on a self-righteous quest. Her rescue mission takes her to a city of sin called Xié in an effort to return some of the beings back to a life of luxury and piety in her Refugee Care Centre in her city called Měi. Along her journey, her darker nature comes to surface as she sheds her socially induced self-righteousness and religious superiority. These and other secrets come bubbling to the surface as she uncovers the details of her origin.

Her journey starts to reveal her darker nature. In the menacing city of Xié she discovers a previously dormant physical ability born of her interracial parentage and uncovers illegal cross galactic alien and human trafficking.

Like all good science fiction and fantasy stories, a deeper meaning and social critique lies just beneath the surface narrative. “The fact that everything is through the minds eye of an alien means we can be as far away from the topics I discuss as we can be near to them,” says the author. “In this series, we are the aliens and our beliefs are in many ways interlinked.”

“I want [readers] to be absorbed and entertained,” says the author. “I want them to re-think their beliefs and our socialization and open to change. I would also like them to be more sensitive towards vulnerable members of society and more open minded in general.”
