Who is Alysa?

Alysa is the main character of the series. Alysa is a young woman of the Field Folk, a farming clan nestled in the mountains of post-apocalyptic planet Xunar-kun. As a restless teen, she is faced with seemingly impossible choices and dangerous situations. We journey with this reluctant hero as she embraces her challenges, and we cheer for her as she overcomes them, contributing much to her world.


Book 1 - Alysa of the Fields Synopsis
Theme: Find the hero who lives inside of you.


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 2: The TrailFolk of Xunar-kun Synopsis

Theme: We are part of something greater than ourselves.


It's four cycles later. To some extent the Folk and Trailmen have accepted each other. Some 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.
