Fourteen-year-old orphan Jack Morgan is hiding out.

In a spaceship.

Falsely accused of a crime, he pilots his Uncle Virgil's spaceship to a remote and uninhabited planet hoping to escape capture. When another ship crashes after a fierce battle, Jack rescues the sole survivor-- a K'da warrior names Draycos. It turns out Draycos can help Jack clear his name. All they have to do is team up. No problem, right?

Until Jack learns that Draycos is not your average alien.

Ages 10 and up
