A boy with unprecedented power must turn to the terrifying Alien enemies of humanity to discover his true nature and bring peace to a galaxy at war. Lucky lives a relatively normal life on a remote moon of the planet Aries One, safe from the turmoil and devastation of the interstellar war between Humans and Aliens. Lucky has seen images of the horned, cloven-hooved Aliens before, but he’s never seen one up close. Then one night, he dreams that the stars are singing to him—and wakes to evidence suggesting that he is not so normal after all. When Lucky’s mother sacrifices herself to help him escape an elite Human military force called the Shadow Guards, he must rely on the Alien crew of a ramshackle starship, where he finds that humanity’s deadly enemies seem surprisingly Human up close. In fact, they may be more Human than Lucky himself, who has a dangerous power that could change the course of the war and the fate of the galaxy—if he can learn how to use it. Star Wars fans seeking another saga to love need look no further than this epic middle-grade adventure from SF Said.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“An SF adventure that favors an elaborate cosmology over science…The plentiful intergalactic action should easily hold readers’ attention.” Publishers Weekly
“This is a sweeping, startling book about a kid who is meant for things he could never have imagined.” Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books
“A well-crafted science fiction novel…[that] takes the reader on an identity quest while packing in action and adventure. The world-building is seamless and integrates perfectly with the story.” VOYA
“Narrator James Carcaterra’s understated performance allows listeners to imagine Lucky’s universe as he and his new companions race across the galaxy…Carcaterra excels at voicing the dialogue and Lucky’s inner thoughts, and his easygoing narration softens the story’s tension, creating a comfortable balance for middle-grade listeners. Phoenix is a good choice for family enjoyment because the audiobook can be accessed on several levels. It’s both a straightforward action-adventure tale and a story of overcoming differences to form deep friendships.” AudioFile
