a science fiction novel
by L. S. King
a prequel of the Sword's Edge Chronicles taking place one thousand years before Sword's Edge
"This is the heart-stopping history of how those who would become the Rangers and the people they defend came to their world even as their former planet was in her death throes and of their initial meeting with the mysterious Enaisi. The characters are interesting, complex individuals, and King makes her readers care about them and want to learn more of their story."
The planet is dying.
Security Chief Avadhron has lost hope.
Forced to retreat to domes to escape the toxic atmosphere, and with earthquakes and volcanic eruptions threatening their lives, his people live in fear and anger. Avadhron struggles to keep order despite his own despair.
A long-dormant portal activates—
An alien arrives.
Avadhron doesn't trust this alien or his altruistic offers of help, but the imminent destruction of his planet forces him to back the plan to move his people through the portal to a new world, rife with beauty and danger.
But can they relocate an entire population before its too late?

Without him, the technology of this world would be much diminished, although to be honest, his brain would probably be in a much better state if he didn’t have my stories twisting his mind into knots.
