"This is the heart-stopping history of how those who would become the Rangers and the people they defend came to their world even as their former planet was in her death throes and of their initial meeting with the mysterious Enaisi. The characters are interesting, complex individuals, and King makes her readers care about them and want to learn more of their story."

Dr. Jonathan Crofts - My Very Own Physicist™ who has patiently waded through my questions and tried valiantly to keep me from breaking the laws of physics. Without him, the technology of this world would be much diminished, although to be honest, his brain would probably be in a much better state if he didnít have my stories twisting his mind into knots.
