The events set in motion long ago by the Archons, an ancient race that founded the Empire, are now coming to a head. Though the world of Mera has been freed from the threat of King Khalazar, the Dragon Prince Mandrake has become the living embodiment of the cruel god Valdur, gifted with limitless power. To counter this threat, Ailia must fulfil the age-old prophecy and become the Tryna Lia, the champion of the Empire. As the time for the final battle draws ever nearer, the fate of not only Ailia, but of the entire Celestial Empire hangs in the balance.
"Proclaimed the long-prophesied ruler of the Celestial Empire, Princess Ailia escapes her enemies on the planet Mera and joins her father, the king, on the world of Arainia. There, with her trusted companions Damion, Jomar, and Lorelyn, she struggles to control her growing powers while gathering political allies." "Yet time is running out for Ailia. On Mera, the mad tyrant Khalazar enters into an unholy alliance with the Dragon Prince Mandrake, a shapechanger with the blood - and magic - of dragons in his veins. Together they assemble a fearsome army for an attack on Arainia. Desperate to strike first, Jomar and Damion return to Mera in command of a brave, yet untested, army of their own. But as they prepare for what might be their last battle, Ailia embarks alone on a perilous mission - one that will place her in Mandrake's power."--BOOK JACKET.

But can they reach the isle and the Stone of the Stars before the tyrannical God-King Khalazar finds it and uses it to rule the world?
