Imagine a ship so massive, it could swallow Jupiter whole. A ship so ancient, it has witnessed the birth of stars and watched them burn and become black dwarfs. Hegira is a leviathan, home to thousands of sapient alien races. This ship of legend, left behind by a nearly extinct race of beings called Starchasers, is a beautiful behemoth, barreling across galaxies. Many seek to conquer this rare jewel, but to rule this ship, one must control her pilot.
Bex Atria, a mercenary, is one of two billion denizens of Hegira, a wandering world of horror and boundless beauty. Sumida is everything Bex isn’t. She’s about to turn Bex’s world upside down.
Laila sets out across the galaxies alone, in search of the ultimate trump card to help her to wrest control of the leviathan ship, Hegira from those who would seek to steal her ancient birthright.
