Elizabeth and the Dominance of Species

Elizabeth and the Dominance of Species picks up mere hours after the conclusion of the first book; titled Elizabeth and the Observatory. Jonathan Hartaway, after having fought his way across the now ruined city of Paris, brought to its near destruction by the invading Martian army, has achieved the goal which he set out for from London days previous. Having arrived at the center of Paris, the Cathedral de Notre Dame, Jonathan is overjoyed to find that his artist from his English countryside Observatory, Elizabeth Stratin, has found her own way across France. Elizabeth survived the destruction of the train carrying the expedition from the Royal London Museum on its way to Egypt only to have greeted Jonathan with a broken body and near broken spirit. Jonathan and Elizabeth finally accepted the intense feelings that they secretly held back from one another and allowed themselves the love they shared together for what short time remained before the relentless Martian warships reduced their little piece of heaven on Earth into ruins. With the refugees around having given themselves up for dead, Jonathan and Elizabeth combine their intelligences and ability to work together so well and with the help of the friends they made along the way, they formulate a plan to get everyone around them to safety outside the city. The reality of the situation is dire as the Cathedral de Notre Dame sits at the center of it all. With Martian war machines, lethal and gigantic three legged mechanical monsters to one side, and the combined remnants of the British and French forces raining shells down on the Cathedral in an attempt to slow the Martian Advance, Jonathan and Elizabeth lead the refugees back under the city. In an attempt to reach safety Jonathan and Elizabeth, along with their friends Tom Watershed and Madeline Singer, the four of them return to the Catacombs and tunnels beneath the streets of Paris. Making their way under the city, the four of them rediscover the will to live and have hopes of happiness beyond the horrors of the streets above their heads. Meanwhile; on the other side of the world, another similar drama is playing out. In Panama Doctor Curt Bellows, a doctor hired to treat the sick and injured at the vast building of the Panama Canal Project, has fled into the jungle. There as he tries to escape the viciousness of the Martian invasion, he meets Marissa Morgan. Having herself escaped the Martian war machines, she and Curt form a quick friendship that the two of them both seem to hope develops into something more. The two survived the destruction of the river-town where they sought refuge. Curt, along with the military commander of the American unit dispatched to protect the Canal, attempt to rebuild the destroyed Ironclad vessel and steam their way to the coast and the safety of the open Caribbean Sea. All the while, the Martians continued drive towards dominating the world at all its corners continues to push Curt and Marissa to new strengths in themselves as more help arrives to assist them in their quest to simply survive another day. The stage is set for a battle at the edge of the ocean as to who will control the vital land-link between two continents. In Paris, Jonathan and Elizabeth lead the refugees into the gutted shell of the once lavish Louvre Art Museum. One last desperate run across the city to the gates of Paris and Jonathan and Elizabeth will be able to escape it all and live out their few remaining days together in the safety of the French countryside. However along the way, hardships beget tragedy as friends fall and are lost forever and injuries suffered during the journey begin to take their toll on all involved, threatening to bring Jonathan’s and Elizabeth’s bliss of marriage to a frightening and painful end. The hope for Jonathan and Elizabeth is that they were not too late in accepting their undeniable love for one another.
