They bring an advanced technology that allows them to utilize the environment in ways Kec's people never could.As the population of the aliens has grown over a period of more than twenty-thousand years, the stress on the environment has become critical.

It is 3289 when rumors of unusual people living in caves far from his land attract the attention of warrior leader Warlog. His shaman, Rayloc, fears the strangers are servants of evil determined to destroy his way of life. Meanwhile, Sotif, History Man of the Alliance between Earth People and Sun People, tries to guard his culture against changes that could induce Mother Earth to withdraw her blessings--while Warlog focuses on severing that alliance, which has lasted for hundreds of generations, by subjugating the Sun People and destroying the Earth People. Faced with this threat, Sotif races to find the Spirit Fire to help his people defeat Warlog. But the key to success lies in the hands of Tincolad, one of Warlog's warriors who has been captured by the Alliance. Now only time will tell if Sotif can persuade Tincolad to help find the Spirit Fire in time--as the fate of the Earth People hangs in the balance. The second book in a trilogy about the interaction between Neandertals and Cro-Magnons, Spirit Fire presents an epic adventure that sweeps across prehistoric Europe, Asia, and Alaska, as the man who invented war embarks on a quest to conquer the world.

Fifteen years after the original, Princess Emma, Prince Eadric, and all the beloved characters are back for another magical adventure from popular author E. D. Baker. Two weeks after Emma's birthday, Prince Eadric -- having been turned from a frog into a human again -- is still in Greater Greensward. One day, a beautiful princess named Adara arrives at the castle in Greater Greensward for a visit, claiming to be Emma's distant cousin. But Adara has other motives that threaten Emma and Eadric's blossoming romance. Meanwhile, something is very wrong in Greater Greensward. Crops are dying, streams are drying up, and large sections of trees in the enchanted forest are withering -- all because the Fairy Queen has disappeared. Without her, there is no peace in the magical kingdom, and dangerous foes threaten to take advantage of her absence. Only brave, tenacious Emma with her knowledge of the land can restore order . . . but first she must set out on a journey unlike any before. Brimming with lovable characters and page-turning magic, The Frog Princess Returns will bring a whole new batch of readers to E. D. Baker's highly acclaimed, wonderfully popular world of Frog Princess series.

The New Faery, born of the four-armed Old Faery and the wingless riders of the great moths, prepare to depart from the long home of the Color Faery. Gifted with the speaking mind of Mothkin and the six wings of the Old Faery, they go seeking a place of their own where they can be “a new people” who need never hear the life-giving Ring Chant of the Faery, which is, to them, a violent clamor of discordant sounds. In a deep place in the Secret Mountains they find a new home and intentionally deceive their offspring by leading them to believe that the New Faery have dwelt in the Vale of Summer for many generations. After their descendants have peopled the vales of the mountains and the Low Lands, they find that the young of these long-lived people are failing. Then the Elders bitterly concede that they need the wisdom of their long parted ancestors.
