Years have passed on Isis, but life has gone backward, not forward. Under their leader, Mark London, the settlers have abandoned the technological knowledge of their forefathers. Upper Isis is now a forbidden zone, and the history of the first inhabitants from Earth has been replaced by myth. But one inquiring young man yearns to know the truth, and soon he gets the chance to find it.

From Our Editors
Two-time Canada Council Prize for Children’s Literature recipient and prolific sci-fi author Monica Hughes’ acclaimed fantasy saga the Isis Trilogy returns in these special 20th-anniversary editions. The Guardian of Isis continues the story many years after the advent of humans from Earth. Despite the technological mastery of both the humans and the Isis natives, the planet’s culture has plummeted back into darkness and superstition. Mark London, the leader, has rendered Upper Isis forbidden and turned the history of the colonists from Earth into myth. Then a young man challenges the order of things by daring to question what is truth and what is propaganda — but will he survive to find out the real truth of Isis?
