THE ADVENT OF HEGIRA
The ship of legend, left behind by a nearly extinct race of beings called Starchasers is a powerhouse barreling across galaxies. Sesili, Hegira’s current pilot, is dying. There are two candidates to take her place, Sumida and Laila. Laila and Sumida are on the run from Koros and the Merchant Guild, two factions seeking to take control of Hegira. The pair must meet up on the planet Tilaat Amat, in order to make their way back to Hegira, despite the murderous efforts of assassins and the machinations of power-hungry deviants.

Sumida is soft-spoken. Inhuman. Sheltered. Now she will have to run a gauntlet of would-be assassins and convince a stubborn caretaker that she is worthy to inherit a dead leviathan’s legacy. Sumida is accompanied by the mercenary, Bex Atria and a psychotic alien named Klang. Her survival will depend on three things: dumb luck, Bex’s talent for weaseling out of a sticky situation and Klang’s penchant for secretly murdering anything that threatens the well-being of his beloved Bex.
