For countless millennia, the Star Dance and the TimeKeeper demons have battled their way across the universe, destroying innumerable planets, constellations, galaxies and civilisations in their path.
The Star Dance has picked Tencendor as the final battleground and DragonStar as the last weapon it can throw against the Demons.
But the Demons are strong, and DragonStar vulnerable. There is a traitor within his camp who plans to hand Sanctuary over to the Demons. And ultimate victory for the Star Son depends on a sacrifice so bloody and horrifying it will precipitate the destruction of everything DragonStar holds dear.
StarLaughter abandons the Demons to pursue her own maddened quest… WolfStar plots to regain his power… and Niah harbours an appalling secret that will destroy DragonStar if she cannot be stopped in time.
