Kittyhawk Gruff never wanted to compete with her sisters. It's not her fault she's good at everything from alien artifacts to hyperspace mechanics. She'd far rather be ordinary. But when an alien lures her sisters into an archaeological death trap, Kittyhawk must learn to live up to her own potential.
A Gruff Sisters Adventure. Please note: this is a short story, not a novel.
A mysterious presence stalks the hallways of the Sky-King's palace, stealing dreams and condemning the king's dancers to a living death. The task of unraveling this mystery falls to young Aesva, the last living bearer of the Gift. But she is young; inexperienced; and the woman most able to assist her has already died.
