A streak of light across a clouded sky
A distant planet. A harsh and desolate surface shrouded in layers of poisonous clouds. A sentient species formed by generations fighting both themselves and the planet they live on.
A blinding light burns through the sky before crashing into the farthest reaches of the desert lands.
Families want to own it. Priests want to turn it to their favor. But Jafred E'Lar, his clan's representative to the Council, holds a terrible secret and another agenda altogether.
