As Krys takes a shortcut by the spaceport, her eardragon speaks to her for the very first time. It asks her to go into the alleys created by the mountains of discarded items tossed out of ships bound for other planets. The foggy alleys are home to a variety of creatures. Not all of them are nice.
Krys soon finds herself on an adventure she never bargained for. One that will stretch her compassion and her bravery. Will she and Shiny be able to reach the Golden Stone before the Enemy does?
