The Heart of Tarkon, by Stephen Meakin
Mankind believes that he is the greatest intelligence on this Planet, and so do many other creatures on similar Worlds scattered right across the Universe. But for some, they know differently. They know that every World is overshadowed by a majestic Being whose impeccable intelligence and power far surpasses anything of the mortal kind. These Beings do not occupy thrones of grandeur, dictating with a rod of iron the daily activities of humans, instead, They are the mindful ones, carefully influencing creatures like Man on towards his highest potential. The Heart of Tarkon is the first book in the epic Centre Vale Trilogy, where mortals discover that life, power and intelligence exists on a far greater scale than previously imagined.
