“It’s even better than the first book, and that’s saying something!” — Patti, Amazon reviewer
A new evil grows in power—
Led by the traitorous Lord Admiral Dray.
A twisted shadow of his former self, he will stop at nothing to fulfill his debt to Lethos: Dray must murder Kalhette. As he draws steadily closer to his prey, his Shadowlyss armies wash over the planet Solace, leaving ruin in their wake. Benton, at the head of the defense, quickly learns that what starts a revolution may not be enough to win it. Only, at what cost is he willing to claim victory?
Though the stakes were already too high, now more than Kalh’s life is on the line: She’s pregnant.
And having to protect a child changes everything.
Amid the turmoil, Nak tries to find meaning in a life without his ship and without his best friend. While fighting with the rebel military in one violent battle after another, he also begins training as a zhani neophyte. Little does he know that saving the ones he loves from the tide of darkness will come at a high price.
A higher price than he ever imagined.

The second episode of the thrilling STARCHILD space opera is not for the faint of heart.
The epic story shows the horrors of war up close and may leave indelible marks on its readers. It also doubles down on the literary elements: In a philosophical quandary reminiscent of Tolstoy, Benton faces the bitterness of an unending fight for freedom, and he learns first hand the gory cost of making moral choices not only in theory but also in practice. Meanwhile, during zhani training, Nak explores the contrary aspects of the Song and the Shadow, exposing a detailed magic system in the vein of Brandon Sanderson’s works.
Not only will this spectacular sequel quench your thirst for more galactic adventure, it is also a fairy tale that crescendos from love to posterity, then legacy, and beyond—a somber romance for the ages. Kalh, because of her deep emotional scars, has avoided commitment all her life. Now she must answer the question Nak asked at the end of the first episode, and her reply will echo across the galaxy.
The next episode takes you alongside your favorite characters on a blood-tingling ride that will leave you wondering, how can good manage to triumph over such overwhelming evil?
