Write a Review

From Kwame Mbalia and Prince Joel David Makonnen comes
an action-packed Afrofuturist adventure about a mythical Ethiopian
empire. Sci-fi and fantasy combine in this epic journey to the
stars.
Yared has traveled light years to find his place in the universe.
Though the battle of Addis Prime is over, the spacefaring Axum
Empire is still fractured, and returning to the planet where their
galaxy-spanning civilization began -Earth.
But they find the planet in disarray. Old Earth's atmosphere is
a mess of junked shuttles and satellites. This is especially true
of Debris Town, an orbital flotilla where poor spacefarers - left
to rot by the Intergalactic Union that rose up in Axum's place
- have taken to piracy to survive.
Yared is set to speak at the opening of the Royal Trials, a competition
of the best exo pilots in the Sol System. But on the day
of his speech, the pirates launch an attack! The siege sets off
a chain of events that will lead Yared into the depths of Old Earth
- and the jaws of a cruel betrayal. There's more to the pirates
- and Debris Town - than anyone saw coming...
