In the first volume, Hazel, the beautiful child of Alana and Mark – two alien races who have hated each other for generations and are bent on each other’s imminent destruction – got to see what some of the best bounty hunters in the galaxy had to offer, as well as some interesting alien species. Now things get kicked up a notch when she meets family.
As the parents and child continue to travel across the galaxy in the giant tree that is their ship, along with the help of the incorporeal teenage girl who is bonded to Hazel and helping them however she can, they get a surprise welcome from Marko’s parents. Emotions rise as his parents have just magicked themselves onto the ship with supposed good reason, but ultimately they really wish to meet Hazel and introduce themselves as her grandparents. Meanwhile, things are not going well for our bounty hunter friend and his liar cat, but because they’re such interesting characters, the reader feels empathy towards them.
The second volume continues right along after the first, continuing this saga with some new characters that continue to show Staples’ range and ability as a brilliant artist, but also in the power of the story and its diverse cast. This is of course a fantasy world we would never want to live in, but we sure can’t seem to get enough of reading about.
