Pella and Dorn, children of the same mother but different fathers, each on a dangerous path, neither aware how much their lives will change in the days ahead. Inept henchmen have failed time and again to detain Pella and deliver her to those who wish to use her for revenge or to further their own ends. All Pella wants is to reconnect with her mother, unaware her mother’s life has changed in ways she could never imagine.
At the conclusion of Thunder Prime: Fog Island, Pella Soames is twelve, an orphan, it would seem, the victim of circumstances beyond her control. But she has no intention of remaining a victim.
Now an adult with a transport business of her own, Pella uses all the resources available to find out if her mother is alive and captive of the Chandorian Brutus Tauk. But getting on Chandor isn’t all that easy. Getting information is even harder. And she must take on work to support her quest. She and her crew of four move people and cargo across the known universe, a lucrative business that gets in the way of Pella’s goal, to find her mother…
