During a failed mission against the Sanctum Empire, Alan Belmont, an Einhart officer, rescues an escape pod from a doomed ship. He learns that it contains Ashra, a young Sanctum princess whose psychic powers make her wanted by every side. Alan is forced to balance his duty to the Einhart with keeping the princess safe, all while he and his team continue fighting the Empire's royalty and creations. More
Ashra, the youngest Sanctum princess, is used to being told what to do and when to do it. She has little freedom; born blind and mute, she lives inside her own mind, experimenting with her burgeoning psychic powers and seeing the world through sight borrowed from those around her. But when her mother sacrifices herself to ensure Ashra leaves on the right escape pod, the princess is forced to begin making decisions for herself, decisions that will shape the fate of empires and the galaxy.
Alan Belmont, officer of the Einhart, has seen better days. He isn’t used to failing, but his latest mission ends abruptly when the Sanctum Empire captures the man he was supposed to rescue. However, when a new weapon that decimates the Sanctum fleet is linked to the girl inside the escape pod he recovers, his structured life of orders and battles begins to crumble. Especially when the girl reminds him of the daughter he once had…
With Ashra under his care, Alan must balance his duties to the Einhart with keeping the princess safe from both the superhuman Sanctum royalty that seek her and his own comrades that want her dead. Their adventures will take them to lush forests filled with strange creatures, vast spaceships packed with Sanctum soldiers, and a hidden research facility where the twisted products of the Empire’s ambition lurk. But they won't face them alone; Aki, an assassin with a personal vendetta against the Sanctum, and Argus, a bear of a man that recites poetry between gunshots, will have their backs at every step.
With memorable characters and action from start to finish, the story explores the morality of war, how a lonely child can heal a broken father, and the beautiful yet tragic consequences of self-sacrifice.
