Threats on all sides draw starship captain Jack Merrick, and oids from many planets, into battles against forces that threaten the noble experiment on Tall-ah Earth.
“Tall-Ah Earth is an incredible epic that lives up to the visionary genre and fans of Star Wars and Star Trek will thoroughly enjoy what’s on offer.” ~ Readers’ Favorite Book Reviews, JC Minnaar (5 STARS)
Captain Jack Merrick has rescued the beautiful maiden and the apisoid children from Lucien’s Dark Planet, and now a terraformed planet awaits them. On Tall-ah Earth, oids, five generations removed from ancestral Evas and Adamas, form the enclave of Neolithia. The progeny of several planets enjoy peaceful relations, farming the land and tending livestock.
Loud booms warn of terrible mechanical beasts unloosed across the planet. As defenders of the enclave learn to wield powerful streams and walls of light from a master, Torlion, Mad Janey casts spells and broadcasts demons to undermine the quest for peace among the Neolithians.

“Victoria Lehrer’s Tall-Ah Earth mesmerized me throughout with intricate and interconnected storylines between all characters. The characters themselves are fleshed out extremely well and undergo extensive development with the experiences they endure. The themes of technological advancement versus spiritual awakening are explored perfectly and form a stark contrast between Jack, his crew, and the inhabitants of Tall-ah Earth. Similarly, the dichotomy displayed between the Lucien, a free will-stealing hive-mind, and the creativeness of individuals like Renae form a strong narrative not too dissimilar from issues of our own society. Victoria Lehrer captured my imagination with vivid details and descriptions of the scenery of Tall-Ah Earth and space. Tall-Ah Earth is an incredible epic that lives up to the visionary genre and fans of Star Wars and Star Trek will thoroughly enjoy what’s on offer.”
“Giving the perfect setting for a science fiction story, Victoria Lehrer commences Tall-ah-Earth with a super intriguing plot that saw me whisked from the world of reality into an awesomely imagined world. The story features very amazing characters, each of them clearly portrayed and their traits strongly but gradually breathing life into the plot. Victoria Lehrer harnesses enough sentiment into her words to make me emotionally vulnerable. I fell in love with some of her characters and could not stand the jeopardy they were exposed to. Captain Jack Merrick’s bravery is admirable. I loved Renae; she was exceptionally adorable, intelligent, selfless, everything good. Victoria Lehrer has a great choice of words. I could not help but notice how awesomely she manifested professionalism in her writing. Albeit Tall-ah Earth is the fourth installment in the ‘New Earth Chronicles,’ it has a great flow; it is a stand-alone book. Tall-ah Earth is a magnificent piece of work and I loved every bit of it.”
“Victoria Lehrer’s massive cast of characters embodies her passion for creating individual and not just archetypes. It is a tribute to the human heart and psyche, an exploration of both technology and the untapped human potential that may well be capable of accomplishing what Lehrer calls psychic-ology. Her narrative does a good job with exposition through a combination of dialogue, characterization, setting, and those nitty-gritty details that make all of these components come together to make everything appear real. If you love speculative fiction, there will be a definite reason for you to love Tall-ah Earth. This is a world where technocrats and mystics abound. It is a well-crafted dreamwork that will keep you entertained.”
“Tall-ah Earth is the fourth book in Lehrer’s ‘New Earth Chronicles’ series. I found it easy to follow, and it can be a standalone novel as well. The introduction was helpful in understanding psychic abilities. Also useful, Lehrer includes a list of leaders, terminology, and location descriptions. I connected with Delphi’s character with ease. I was upset with Joel abandoning her when she had more than proven her unwavering devotion to him. Forgiving him would be an unreal task for me, especially when she discovers some of what he has done while gone. Her accomplishments were more valuable than she was given credit for, and I sincerely hope to see Delphi’s character in future books. I had difficulty putting the book down as the amount of suspense built kept me entranced. The opposing forces to Jack and Tall-ah Earth are always in sight. The transitions from characters and scenes were clear, and the details make every scene come alive in this story. While romance and violence are evident, there is enough left to the imagination so this book would be perfect for fantasy readers from high-school age and above. This story has quickly landed on my favorites list, and I recommend it highly.”
“Author Victoria Lehrer has a gift for building intricate and complex universes, and she utilizes this talent to the maximum with this novel. The planet of Tall-ah was fascinating, to say the least. It was technologically advanced and was very peaceful, considering it had a mish-mash of different oids (humanoids) from different planets. We meet Mad Janey, Joel, Jack, and more, but the real hero of the story was Torlion. Torlion, the lion man, taught everyone self-defense and so much more to survive the chaos created by Janey. He was the only level-headed person when things were heating up before and during the battle. As expected, the author kept the narrative smooth, the pace fast, and the dialogues crisp. Jack was invested, and responsible until the very end. Each character had the opportunity to shine, form a connection with readers, and make them want to learn more. The ending was very hopeful and interesting. It laid the perfect foundation for the next novel in the series. Entertaining and complex novel!”
