A voice interrupts her thoughts. “Mother, Gorgotha Lagash requests an audience.” SeshHaud Draconae turns and gives voice to her vision: *** Daughter of burning light, daughter of fire, Universe Child, all must inspire. Stars shall know of her, their cold light will gleam, Her coming foretold, within the dark dream. The weaver of worlds, the singer of songs, Must stop that which comes and right all its wrongs. The Family together to face hunger great, On her and the balance rest life’s very fate.”

This author has combined fantasy and science fiction to create a unique story. It begins in the main characters' highly magical homeworld, but they soon find themselves thrust into a new existence - one of science and extremely advanced technology, where the use of 'magic' is considered highly suspicious. It is also a realm of extremely dangerous intrigue.
The main characters, brother and sister, are on their own. Tagged as members of an unusual offshoot of the imperial family, no one claims to be their parents or even to know who their parents may be.
It is a dangerous world, and they - particularly the sister, Shi'ahn, proves skilled at getting into trouble. In an attempt to rescue a kidnapped relative, she first finds herself and others caught in a deadly trap, and upon escaping, they fall into a pitch black, stone dungeon. Her brother William tracks them down and returns her home in the most advanced ship in existence.
Then what does Shi'ahn do? She volunteers to return to Chaos - they realm she had been imprisoned in, to testify on the behalf of a woman who kidnapped yet another member of the Imperial family! And THAT is when the real trouble begins.
