Press release: New Novel Seeks Meaning in the Face of Disillusionment
Only two decades after first contact, even Earth's people know of Haralahn, the great-fish spiritual leader on distant Ellason. Shawne Oran-ElConn-Grey determines to seek his guidance, as she struggles to tame a haunting disillusionment that followed her home from Earth. Her quest for meaning draws everyone she loves away to the Kuiper Belt and into a genetic mystery on the watery home planet of the ellls.
The fourth novel in Cary Neeper's Archives of Varok series, An Alien’s Quest completes the story of Shawne and her mixed-species family as they search for answers in Ellason's wild seas.
