V2 Renaissance

(4)

Emissaries from planet Näkän are heavily invested in an altruistic mission: saving a dying Earth and its inhabitants from a tragic end. Humans around the world, mesmerized by the extraterrestrial technology and the hope it brings to their planet, have so far shown little resistance to the mostly pacific invasion of their homelands. But other aliens involved in the undertaking appear to have less noble intentions for the blue planet...

V3 Renaissance

(5)

Swänn et Liz are pursued by Skuälls poachers, responsible for the death of the Hamilton family. Swänn confronts the realities of the war and readies himself to announce the news of the casualties to their families. And yet, there is hope for Liz. In the meantime, on Näkän, debates about funding for the Renaissance expedition continue and, oddly enough, Skuäll diplomacy takes on an usually important role. This masterful volume concludes the first story cycle in this gripping series.

V4 Renaissance

(3)

Swänn and Sätie, originally from the planet Näkän, have now been living on Earth for twenty years. They belong to the medical and military staff of Renaissance, the expedition financed by the Complex to rescue the Earth from ecological disaster. Most communities now live in harmony with their extraterrestrial saviors, while others have withdrawn into human enclaves in autonomous zones, where Swänn and his kind aren't welcome. More troubling for Renaissance, however, is the terrorist opposition that is quickly gaining steam, throwing a wrench into the gears of the benevolent occupiers. They will soon see that these humans are ready to do whatever it takes to get the Complex out of the solar system.
