A refugee from a doomed planet, Mira must learn to be Belle, a normal earth-girl -- or as normal a girl as she can be with powers of body and of mind that she develops as she grows into her teens. It hardly helps things that her ex-military adoptive father sends her on missions against the very nation that he served.
As she deals with her life's strangeness, she must find scattered survivors of her lost world and learn how to obey three commands given her by a doomed king the night before his world would end: "Remember the Homeworld, perpetuate the People, and save the Earth." Ever more, she comes to fear that saving the Earth may mean destroying it!
An homage to all of the tales of children of lost worlds who become superheros -- or villains -- on the earth.
