This multifaceted quest story has no typical hero, goal, or plot. Instead, it pulls us into a universe of wondrous planets, witty aliens, and cross-cultural/species dilemmas. With winsome humor and scientific scrutiny, Neeper threads the story with the latest in quantum physics and astronomy, while also probing the deepest questions of theology. She draws the reader personally into this quest for big answers . . .
Within the context of an action-packed, adventure, Neeper invites the reader to join an exploration of philosophy, science, faith and social organization. Funny, exciting, imaginative and contemplative, An Alien’s Quest illuminates many of the challenges that plague contemporary Earthlings while remaining optimistic that not all is lost. An enjoyable and important read.

What fun to read about alien worlds and get to know their non-human residents whose lives are so different and yet similar to ours, and from whom we have much to learn about saving our earth. The story is spell-binding, . . .
One of the truly amazing things about these two books is the way they explore attraction on every level. . . .
Another way Cary Neeper has set herself apart with her work is by not shying away from sensitive political issues in the world-building she has done for Varok. . . .
I enjoyed everything about these books, from the writing to the plot to the characters. Cary Neeper did a wonderful job of putting a fresh spin on the alien invasion story, offering visitors from space who just want to help Earth avoid the same problems they themselves faced in the past. These two books were a joy to read and definitely earned the five stars I have given them.
. . . you must read the first two books first before this one. . . .
The third book continues Neeper's quest of bringing a palatable model of steady-state economics to the attention of the world. And unlike most other scholars on the subject, she's trying to do it through the application of the system in a fictional world. And unlike most other Science-Fiction writers, she accomplishes her goal with remarkable, robust characters with a similarly developed culture.
