Sixteen-year-old Tariana Osono has dreamed her entire life of flying to the stars. But when disaster strikes her first voyage, crippling her ship, Tariana must take desperate action to save herself and her ten-year-old sister, Margeth. Calling on powers she never knew she had, she flings their tiny escape ship randomly and desperately across the Galaxy, finally coming to rest on a strange world called Xonareth.
Here they discover a world of just two cities, one of whose inhabitants greet the two Princesses as saviors, and the other as the greatest threat Xonareth has ever seen. Their arrival may herald the rebirth of an ancient and vast Star Empire whose fall was so complete its memory has been lost to the Galaxy for ten thousand years. As the two cities move toward open war, though, all Tariana and Margeth want is to find a way home, even as Tariana confronts the truth about herself and her new powers. For she is a Stardancer, one of the rare people who can fly through hyperspace at will.
The first book of a planned nine-volume series, Stardancer is a tale of adventure, love, loss, unknown abilities, forgotten knowledge, forbidden memory, coming of age, finding one's way, and the dangers that rise when wishes come true.
