Before moving to Earth, there was Zurka, a unique planet with a nearly permanent light and dark side. For ten-year-old Alala, occasionally dying and crabby, inhuman schoolmates are the norm. Dragging her ghostly friend halfway across the planet at insanely high speeds and dueling a highly skilled clone are ways to pass time.
For a handful of days a year, a Jupiter-sized planet called Wickedia crosses paths between Zurka and its sun, leaving Zurka within an obscure shadow. With darkness come Tyran's, a savage species born from hell-fire. Alala pursues the lofty brutes to the surface of their uncharted, poisonous world where she finds herself stranded, possessing only a star-powered-sword, and diminishing oxygen supply. With thousands of mindless demons standing at her feet, survival options are bleak.
From the author: This story takes place a few months before Alala moved to Earth. Although you can read this as a stand alone story, it is meant to be read after reading Alala 1 and Alala 2. I think it will be less enjoyable if it is read first but, I could be wrong.
