Forerunner: On the planet Kuxortal, young Simsa grows up among garbage pickers who live upon the ancient ruins of a fallen galactic civilization, the Forerunners. But Simsa has always been different. Her skin is blue-black and she shares a telepathic bond with an alien pet, a zorsal. Then Thom, a star ranger, arrives, leading Simsa to search for her origins. The truth may lie in the Forerunner ruins where Simsa was first discovered as a infant. What she learns there will change her life, and perhaps galactic civilization itself, forever.

Forerunner: The Second Venture: Simsa has escaped the criminal guilds of Kuxortal only to find herself held prisoner by starfaring humans intent on discovering the secrets of the Forerunners contained within her. With the aid of her pet zorsal, Simsa escapes, crash landing on a sandy world also touched by Forerunner civilization. There she must escape death at alien hands while battling the spirit within that seeks to possess her and transform her into something utterly inhuman. She is determined to keep her freedom and write her own destiny among the stars.
