Hidden deep in the mountains of planet Xunar-kun, the Field Folk clan believed themselves to be the only remaining people, other than the distant Trailmen, to inhabit their warn-torn world.
They were wrong. In coming to realize her individuality, Alysa—a young woman of the Folk—risks all to save her people from certain peril. As a result, long-hidden truths are revealed, age-old hatreds are healed, and Alysa leads her people to a new way of life.

Book Two: The TrailFolk of Xunar-kun

Theme: You are part of something greater than yourself.


“The exploration of this well conceived world is reason enough to immerse oneself in the story...”

It is four cycles later. The Folk and Trailmen have accepted that they are part of something greater than themselves. They have come together as “the Seekers”. Their purpose: to find the true Parents of the Orphans. But they find something much more insidious and more lethal than any threat they have faced before.
