~ Synopsis ~
She wants out, but destiny has other plans . . .
Life is unfair, thirteen-year-old Maia knows that for sure. Her dead mother is an alleged turncoat; her people are practically slaves to the Xifarians-a race of ruthless space travelers; her planet is near extinction.
Maia keeps her hopes alive for a better and peaceful future-until the day she gives in to the charms of a gypsy boy and soars into the skies in his glider.
And then, the little chance at happiness Maia thought she had is pried away. Spotted by Xifarian scouts, she is recruited into their dubious peace initiative.
Maia had never considered visiting the galaxy roving planet-spaceship of Xif; she had never thought of learning telekinetics; she had never imagined befriending the reclusive people from the undersea colonies.
But all that is about to happen, and Maia’s life is about to change forever . . .
