"The only thing more fun than a bonkers space battle is a whole book packed with bonkers space battles. Come for the exploding spaceships, stay for the intriguing universe." - Becky Chambers, on The Stars Now Unclaimed
It's been three years since Esa joined the ranks of the Justified after her rescue from the Pax by Justified agent Jane Kamali. Together, Esa and Jane travel from planet to Pulse-ravaged planet, searching for other children with Esa's supernatural abilities. It's hard work, but Esa has never felt more assured of her place in the universe.
On a visit to a planet so remote that its inhabitants never learned that the Sect Wars ended over a hundred years ago, they learn that the Justified are not the only people searching for gifted children. There is a creature with unexpected powers who will stop at nothing to get its hands on the children that Esa and Jane are trying to rescue.
With their latest recruit in tow - a young Wulf child named Sho - Esa and Jane will travel halfway across the galaxy in pursuit of answers. But the answers only lead to more questions, and the danger will only increase as they chase their strange nemesis, determined to learn the purpose of his violent mission.
