Book 1. The Mutant Season by Karen Haber and Robert Silverberg
There are mutants living among us. People with golden yellow eyes, extraordinary powers and strange abilities. For centuries they have hidden themselves, fearing persecution. After rising tensions in recent decades, the mutants find new hope in the twenty-first century, with one of their own holding high political office.
But underlying prejudices are hard to eradicate completely. And even as the mutants find greater acceptance in society, a single event threatens to undo everything.
In 2017, the murder of a prominent politician sets off a series of events that will bring the mutants into direct conflict with "normal" humans, and the world may never again be the same.
Book 2. The Mutant Prime by Karen Haber
The world is a changed place since the events related in The Mutant Season. An uneasy peace exists between "normal" humans and the psychic mutants with the golden eyes.
While Michael Ryton gets entangled in an investigation into a lethal explosion on the moon, the world is faced with a "supermutant" with unknown origins, whose very existence threatens the fragile truce that exists between the communities.
Book 3. Mutant Star by Karen Haber
The world is on the threshold of major changes as mutants come out of hiding and start taking their rightful place among normal humans. But can these powerful mutants really overcome the fear and suspicions of non-mutants to be able to co-exist peacefully?
And what of the problems when a "null" mutant starts to change? Rick was born with no mutant abilities but has suddenly started developing them in an unheard of combination of strength and versatility. His struggle to cope with these new-found powers threatens to destroy Rick as well as all those around him.
Book 4. Mutant Legacy by Karen Haber
Finally, after years of struggle, mutants are being accepted into the mainstream of human society. But just as things seem to be settling down rumors of strange happenings in the New Mexican desert start raising questions about mutants once again.
Rick Akimura, the long-sought supermutant, has established a cult-like base in the desert and once again threatens the fragile peace between mutants and normal humans. But Joachim Metzger, leader of the mutants, is determined to maintain the hard earned peace with the help of Rick's own brother, the brilliant therapist Julian Akimura.
