A REMOTE WORLD. A PERILOUS QUEST. A DARING HEROINE.
Six months after defeating the Bikashi threat to the allied planets, Commander Hickory Lace, space pilot Jess Parker and the young genius Gareth Blanquette, are back on the alien planet, Prosperine. Every living thing on the ground, under the sea, and in the air, is dangerous to humans, doubly so when there’s an embargo on bringing modern weapons to the surface.
This time, the fabled Sword of Connat-sèra-Haagar has gone missing and Hickory must find and return it to the temple in Avanaux.
The quest takes Hickory to the rugged country of Erlach where she faces the malevolent Riv-Amok, then deep into the mountains where the rebel leader, Sequana, has overthrown the rightful king and is rallying the northern clans to war.
Hickory must find a way to restore the king to his throne, and rescue the mysterious Teacher from Sequana’s dungeons. Only then can she hope to defeat Sequana and win back the Sword.
