Jedi Padawan Reath Silas isn’t sure if he’s ready for an adventure. Yet he finds himself boarding a small ship en-route to might-as-well-be-nowhere instead of remaining in the Jedi Archives where he feels most at home. Why? Because his Master said so. He has no other choice. But when the Great Disaster hits, Silas and his newfound companions find themselves on a much more dangerous journey.
