Crade is in the firm hands of the Union of Worlds and life is not what it used to be. The beauty and pride of the former independent kingdom are only a faint memory for its inhabitants and resentment is spreading. When Prince Ory disappears during an attack at the royal parade, it seems that an uprising is finally beginning.
Daru and Lizzee, two orphans from Crade, suddenly find themselves caught up in the middle of a galactic conflict. With the Union in hot pursuit, they race from one dangerous situation to the next, navigating through the galaxy with help of the strong-minded artificial intelligence, Aye-Eye.
Loyalty and friendship are scarce in this time, and an unexpected conversation causes Daru to question his own existence and who and what he is fighting for.
