Book 1: The Kota
The future is an ugly place, but we are not left without hope...
Earth in Trok's day is plagued by war and the deadly DRK virus. His brother, Lee Kandoya, joins the Kota people's movement to fulfill prophecies meant to save Earth, and Trok's world is turned upside-down as he discovers the truth about his own role as the prophesied Kota Bearer and immortal Interceder.
Five hundred years later, the prophesied Kota Warriors of the Mark Prophecy are at last born. Loree Kandoya is gifted with the mysterious abilities of perfect hand/eye coordination and invisibility. Her brother, Zaak, has mutate-genes that enhance his senses. A girl named Alex turns out to be a telepath. Her brother, Ryu, is blessed with incredible mutate-genes of strength.
However, nothing about these Marked children is what Trok expected, and the world is now in chaos...
Centuries of war have left entire countries in ruin, abandoned, and the global population suffers from poverty, the plague of the DRK, and oppression under a global tyranny known as the Dominion. Soldiers sweep the regions in search of rebels, and hundreds are murdered - or punished with the DRK - as the Dominion rulers hoard their wealth.
Will the Warriors be able to make a difference? Working in the background, Trok knows that if the Warriors are going to bring down the Dominion and stop the DRK virus, it's going to take a miracle. But how things come together surprises even him.
Book 2: The Ebonite and Her Earthling
For the Kota Warriors, everything has changed. Trok has abandoned them. Cruelthor has disappeared. They're cut off from Earth, never to return. On their own, what purpose do they serve now?
Ebon is a desolate planet never meant for human life. The Ebonite colonists have long been trying to exterminate the native Kynajabi creatures, and the Warriors soon find themselves entangled in the turmoil of their new world. The Warrior Seer becomes a god-prophet, working to guide the suffering citizens and veterans of the Kynajabi Eradication Effort. The Hunter and the Fighter continue the search for Cruelthor, but soon an unexpected source tells them of a new mission. And the Warrior Leader? Well, it's up to Cliqani to heal her mysteriously resurrected Earthling patient, who may be able to save the colonists from the native beasts. However, it's Trok's Ebonite friend who holds the secret to restoring peace for Ebon and its inhabitants.
Together, the Warriors and their Ebonite hosts must learn to sacrifice for the benefit of others - even others most alien.
Book 3: Pharmakon
Phantasya is a world of second chances. It's also a world fated to test man's faith. In this supernatural paradise, trials and revelations arise for each Kota Warrior. Rave and Arctos must travel back to Ebon to finish a mission they thought was over. Amu teleports to Rowen and discovers a secret hidden since Earth. Kynacoba and Galcon fight a devilish enemy who could lead the Phantasyans into horrific rebellion against their Guardian.
Meanwhile, the isolation of Trok's immortality begins to take its toll. Knowing how this future will end, he must do what is right for everyone involved.
But how do you best fight a losing battle? The more the Warriors discover, the trickier their choices become.
Book 4: Zenith Prophecies
The Kota of Zenith have waited centuries for the Warriors. Now, their Empress insists that Rave force their last prophecy into fulfillment, despite what it will mean for Kynacoba.
Shocking them all, Cruelthor is discovered on Zenith with the DRK virus, and it's then that Amu's Magi mission becomes clear. But how are the Kota of Zenith not immune?
With the help of Neema and Toel, two Zenoes with secrets of their own, the Warriors must discover what it truly means to be Kota. Only then can they defeat the DRK and reach the promised Re-Life of peace.

She self-published her first book in college in 2004 and has been evolving The Kota Series since she was nine, basing the story on childhood fantasies derived from watching too much X-Men and Star Wars and reading too much Chronicles of Narnia and A Wrinkle in Time. A Fairly Fairy Tale is Sunshine’s first MG Fantasy book. She got the idea from her family’s crest, which portrays a dragon shooting flames from both ends, and from a little girl whose second favorite word is farts.
