Jared Adams is the sole survivor of the space ship Wayfarer, wrecked on a dead planet, alone in this barren world. Until he sees two humans arrive at the crash site.
Aaronia, daughter of the king, and her uncle Porto are in awe of this strange man who speaks babble and yet appears God-like. He rescues her uncle from a deadly beast by throwing lightning from his hand, then takes them back to their camp in a miraculous cart that runs on its own power.
Though their languages are different, Aaronia and Jared are drawn to each other. Despite Aaronia’s pleas, her father the king is in fear of how Jared’s advanced technology might adversely affect their world.
Jared is imprisoned and sentenced to death. Aaronia must somehow prevent Jared’s execution. And the two of them must find a way to save the people of Sionon from their forced execution by a dying planet.
