On the 12th anniversary of his mother's disappearance, Zahn makes his annual trip up to an island summit — only to be awoken by a brilliant object thundering down from the sky, setting off a chain of events that takes him face to face with a living starship and its cryptic pilot.

For the first time in his life, Zahn has the chance to learn the fate of his mother. Saying goodbye isn't easy, but soon he's bound for the galactic core where he encounters the Vakragha, a species bent on consuming the largest prey: entire stars. And to Zahn's horror, he learns that they're heading toward his homeworld. Only the Tulari, a stone that can heal the wounds they cut into space, offers any hope.

But saving his world from total enslavement isn't all he has to worry about. Just when Zahn lands on a moon stolen by the Vakragha, he makes a breakthrough, finally learning his mother's true fate. Now he is faced with a heartbreaking decision that could either save his world or doom it forever.

What's really interesting about this book is how multi-layered it is… Zahn's story manages to pull from the world around us, while also incorporating elements of mythology and hero epics. This is a coming of age story of the highest caliber.” --Jessica Nottingham (Creator of
