Jint Lin finds this out the hard way when, as a child, his home world is conquered by the powerful Abh Empire: the self-proclaimed Kin of the Stars, and rulers of vast swaths of the known universe. As a newly-appointed member of the Abh’s imperial aristocracy, Jint must learn to forge his own destiny in the wider universe while bearing burdens he never asked for, caught between his surface-dweller “Lander” heritage and the byzantine culture of the Abh, of which he is now nominally a member. A chance meeting with the brave-but-lonely Apprentice Starpilot Lafier aboard the Patrol Ship Goslauth will lead them both headfirst down a path of galaxy-spanning intrigue and warfare that will forever change the fate of all of humankind.
Flung into the fray of a war they never wanted, Jint and Princess Lafier must find a way to aid the Empire’s war efforts, but they are hindered by a less than savory fellow Abh and by United Humankind forces alike, all while stranded and bereft of supplies. What allies can they find on an unfamiliar world blanketed by anti-Abh propaganda? How can they even evade capture while the planet’s police are hot on the lookout for them? The pair’s mettle — and their bond with each other — shall be tested and then some in the exhilarating second chapter of their personal saga! Be there to watch an epic space opera romp unfold!
Can Jint and Lafier elude the enemy’s concerted efforts to capture them? Can they trust the strange bedfellows that are their new “allies”? And with all odds against them, have they the sheer grit necessary to flee the thick of the fire and live another day in this internecine war? What does destiny have in store for them? Witness the end of an era, and the beginnings of a legacy like no other as the story picks back up in the long-running continuation series, Banner of the Stars.
“I am Emmymephy, first princess and heiress apparent of the Laverio Empire!”
Yep, more crap to deal with! I’m traveling to the capital with Wataru the Hero of Debt and the imperial princess? Yeah, no way are the three of us gonna make it to the capital safely...
This is Volume 10 of my own kind of dungeon story! Thus begins a trouble-filled journey to the capital!
