From the depths of space the Seeker had come, to make the Solar system her nest and its planets food for her insatiable brood. With the help of aliens who has also once been the Seekers' victimes, the invader was defeated, but not before Earth was ravaged and its inhabitants reduced to barbarism.
Young Benn Dain learned of Mazeway, a planetary doublet whose twin worlds, Blade and Stone, were a testing ground for Eldren young. The Eldren whom may very well be the savior for humanity, if they can be convinced to help a savage species. If Benn could survive Mazeway, manking might be allowed a reprieve.
With him went two other humans, Roxane Kwan and Diego Boliver, who had their own reasons for braving the test.
But the Game of Blade and Stone was not designed for humans, and to survive, they would have to fathom the ways of alien minds and learn that the subtle workings of Eldren peace held many hidden traps...
