Scarb are the enemy. The enemy. The enemy. I told myself this over and over. They murdered my parents. They rape the land and kill humans as if they are the vermin. They took Ray. I ran water over my face, looked at my eyes with their double lenses like two blue lakes: one navy, one ice. The enemy. And now I'm one of them.
Klanor has destroyed Rynah's home planet, Lanyr, by stealing the crystal that controls the planet's magnetic field. His plan is to find all six of the crystals, unite them to create a deadly weapon, and destroy the entire star system...enabling him to create his own empire! With the help of the mysterious Solaris, Rynah gathers four unlikely heroes from a distant planet to fulfill the prophecy and attempt to save humanity.
Following the tragic battle with Klanor, sorrow fills the crew aboard Solaris. Rynah locks herself in her quarters, refusing to speak with the others, but Solaris convinces her to put aside her grief and continue the mission Marlow had entrusted to her. During a meeting in the ship's galley, Rynah and the crew resolve to pursue the next crystal.
