Book 1 - Trefury: Mendi's Curse
The land of Callorin is dying, cast off from divine aid and adrift in cold seas, with dark powers swooping in for the kill. As they have for thousands of years, Callorin turns to Thssk to fix the problem, but Thssk wants to avoid everyone. He failed last time, and his human handler put a curse on him as he abandoned her on a battlefield. She would be avenged through the next girl Thssk forced to become his handler.
Thssk is sent on a mission to another world to rescue the long-lost heir of Origiba, in the hope of developing outside support for Callorin. While there, Thssk tries to thwart the curse by taking Cortnee, a tech savvy, arts major as his new handler. It is only when Thssk has gained the upper hand over his enemies and everything seems to be working out for a change that he discovers he is not the game changer anymore—Cortnee is.
On a world where starships are born, homes grow, and flowers can flatten entire cities, millions of lives are at stake. More importantly, Thssk’s notorious past comes back to bite him. The girl who has become a catalyst politically and astralgically won’t communicate with him, and she has some crazy ideas about how to get their job done. With her, Thssk may fail for a second time, without her, he may never attain the great future he was promised.

"Trefury is a mental feast for those who crave science fiction with well-crafted world-building, intriguing characters, and an unusual partnership which defies the odds." ~ Angie Sandro, author of the Dark Paradise series.
"Trouble's no stranger to Cortnee Feyandihar. Her mom disappears, drug dealers are after her for exposing their network, asteroids threaten her city, and while interviewing a musician she gets in the middle of an interplanetary scuffle. Now she's stuck on a hostile new world in the middle of a war, hunted by many, reliant upon a living whip, and she's invisible. Life's completely wacked." ~ alternative book summary, Joyce Alton
