In a lonely part of the galaxy, in a cluster of stars where only a few hospitable planets drift, the planet known as Vwaa is in a state of decay, and there is nothing anyone or anything can do about it.
The planet’s core is dying, bringing with it a slew of irreversible events, including the most devastating – a slow drop in temperature. Fortunately, this is nothing new to its inhabitants, the primitive Nowah race, who have been preparing themselves mentally for the apocalypse.
And it’s all thanks to their powerful siblings: the Saratori, who are akin to the Nowahs but are blessed in their own unique way (blessed by God Ramoen). They have four arms, wield great technology, and know things about the Universe most Nowahs don’t.
The Saratori educates … they help Nowahs understand the planet they live on. The Saratori provides … they give their primitive siblings advanced technology; for example, lights. And most important of all, the Saratori have promised salvation for the coming destruction of their planet. It is known as the Grand Pickup: the year everyone is leaving Vwaa for another planet.
Elijah and his family – his mate and newborn – are waiting patiently for it all to begin, because it’s the year of the Grand Pickup, and the sky should soon be flying with great machinery. It couldn’t have come at a better time. The temperature is falling, and Elijah, a Nowah comfortable with his life, is getting increasingly impatient, especially when he sees something on his skin for the very first time – gooseflesh.
