Summary

It is 2104 and a New Age for humanity. Technology and inspirational wisdom have together healed the Earth, eliminated most life-threatening disease and extended by a generation the human lifespan. 
Life is disciplined in this new Age of Mind, but air steward Kieron Keats can live with that. And, of course, he has little choice. 
By living quietly and working hard he’s raised his daughter, Teria, to the eve of graduation, and if he keeps his head down and his body looking fit he should have work for years to come. 
All Keats wants is to keep them safe. Teria wants more. 
The Suncaster is a good, smart read, a novel for seekers and idea-people. A vision of the future based on the present and the past, of technology, of society, but most of all a novel of emergent ‘man—of who we may become, and who else we might be along the way.

    For the past year, sleep paralysis has been little more than a thorn in Natalia's side. That is, until she meets Korin, a strange but beautiful alien being who makes her question everything she knows about the universe.  
    
     
    Life-changing love almost feels like an invasion.
    
     
    I won’t bore you with details about the mysterious medical issues I’ve had over the last year;
     
    the sudden severe allergies to food and medication, the sleep paralysis. All I’ll tell you is that they turned my life upside down.
     
    But I’m a rational person.
     
    Naturally, I assumed that my mind was playing tricks on me when I saw the strange figures standing over me.
     
    But it felt so freakishly real;
     
    especially one face in particular that always stayed with me long after I woke up.
     
    Something about him always drew me in and I knew he was different. He made me feel different.
     
    All my life, romance has felt like something that was reserved for everyone but me. I’d accepted that the only love in my life would be experienced through my artwork.
     
    Now I’m questioning everything I know about myself, about reality, and especially about love.
