With her crew abandoned on a desert planet, Laura Vinfield begins an epic journey, stricken by the tides of a galactic war. With many enemies nipping at the heels of the rugged, intrepid Skyreign crew, the stakes are high. An ancient, sacred vessel; a powerful demigoddess; a demonic adversary; entire worlds caught in the crossfire; a surfacing prophecy. Total chaos breaks loose, and it falls to the unlikely heroes aboard the Skyreign to restore the balance of power in the galaxy--lest it fall into an abyssal darkness it can never come back from again. There are those who would accept the Motherworld--and those who would bury it again.
