Exiled to the Darkland Expanse, on the fringes of the known galaxy, its captain and crew have spent the last decade struggling just to stay alive. In a galaxy full of cruel gods, terrifying monsters and treacherous allies, though, survival is far from an easy task.
After a narrow escape from the darkelings, a swarm of dangerous alien creatures intent on destroying them, Captain Asher Lee and the crew of the freeship Phoenix have come to the planet Ordash in order to buy parts and make repairs. When a group of fanatical warriors calling themselves the Hunters of the Hall capture Wicka Bay, the ship’s cyborg chief engineer, the crew are determined to get her back. Will they succeed in launching a desperate rescue attempt when their Watcher allies refuse to help and the trail of the kidnappers leads into the Darklands Expanse, a vast area of space where the very stars are now dark and cold?
The Phoenix and the Hunters of the Hall is the third episode of the Phoenix Odyssey, an ongoing serial of adventure amidst the stars
