A deep-space archaeological dig shrouded in mystery . . .

Clues to the location of a legendary power in the reaches of the galaxy . . .

A man and a woman, each holding half the answers, both defying a totalitarian government.

Together, Blake Sharrel and Rhonda Gregory embark on a starship quest to find the Leijan, an enigma that holds the fate of the cosmos. It's an epic journey filled with peril: a crew of pirates ready to slit their throats, a planet where intruders are crucified upside down, and a chase across countless light years of unexplored space.

From one planet's Valley of the Skull to another planet's City of the Skull, and on to a derelict spacecraft orbiting a black world, it will be a Starflight to Destiny.

“A genuine thrilling and utterly entertaining read. I highly recommend it to anyone who enjoys classic science fiction.”—Shaun Raymond Hoadley, illustrator for books by Edgar Rice Burroughs.
