Halwende, a galactic trader, crash lands on a planet that shouldn’t be there. To make matters worse, he is alone…or is he? He is confronted one day by two children, who lead him to a city where Princess Adala is at war with Emperor Egon. She is battling to regain the power Egon has taken from her father, while keeping herself from Egon’s clutches.
When asked to help, Halwende initially can’t because of the dark secret and the pain he has hidden, even from himself. The memory hurts too much. But when he sees the tyranny of Emperor Egon and the suffering of the people, he can’t refuse Adala and joins her in the fight. The fighting intensifies, and matters become desperate when Adala is captured. Halwende must save her or die trying for his own redemption, but will he succeed…?
