W. Clark Boutwell's political science fiction book “Malila of the Scorch: Book Three of Old Men and Infidels” will be featured by ReadersMagnet at the New York Library Association 2022 Annual Conference and Trade Show on November 3 - 4, 2022, at Saratoga Springs City Center at 522 Broadway, Saratoga Springs, NY 12866, and ReadersMagnet Book Confab on October 28 - 30, 2022, at 72 Warren St., Tribeca, New York.
“Malila of the Scorch” is the third and final book in the Malila-Jesse trilogy, following “Outland Exile” and “Exiles' Escape.” War is coming. All expect it. It brings opportunities and disasters—but to whom?
Malila, raised on the lies of the Unity, has finally broken free to become the messenger for the Scorch, a polyarchy of sentient plants.
Malila for the first time sees Jesse as harsh, sere, and distrustful of the Scorch despite long acquaintance, out of character with his usual magnanimity. Malila's new role is a lot for an “old, middle-aged” soldier to take in at once. Yet, at the end of all things, with death as last release, the two realize that “only the wounded may heal.”
Once again, W. Clark Boutwell has provided his readers with a compelling story, which also serves as an outstanding conclusion to the “Old Men and Infidels” trilogy, as their diverse histories reinforce and repel their desires and actions. In this engaging book, readers couldn't get enough of the story of Malila and her adventures.
