      What is a Harpy? To the human inhabitants of the jungle planet, Dora, a harpy is a half bird, half man winged monster guilty of stealing and molesting their women. Despite having willowy seductive human torsos, the mute feral harpies are precarious game animals, hunted and prized by the men for their lofty trophy wings. .

    But to a beautiful young woman named Kari, the harpies are timid handsome creatures, unfairly persecuted. As a child, she experienced a harpy encounter when an adolescent blond male saved her from the deadly jaws of a giant eel. Kari returns to Dora after ten years in Earth's schools determined to unravel the mysteries surrounding the elusive harpies despite her father's warnings. She is plagued by questions. Are the harpies truly dangerous thieving animals, who deserve the hunting extinction? Why does her father despise them and the most haunting question of all, why, in spite of the harpy treachery, is she blindly drawn and devoted to this elegant golden male harpy?

    The Golden Harpy is a futuristic adventure fantasy shrouded in mystery and suspense, intertwined with deadly hazards and horrendous cruelty, as well as beauty, wonder and undying love.
