When Mai is chosen to take a pilgrimage to the Valley of a Thousand Thoughts to train with the oldest and wisest master of their people, an ancient prophecy is set in motion. The events to come have been predicted but are not unchangeable. When the Starchild returns to the planet of Sage, the foreknowledge of the prophecy begins to gain strength. Four children come together and become linked to the events that lie ahead. In The Age of Akra, the first stage of their journey has them facing the deadly spiderflax, only then to be confronted by a creature of the underworld, an evil Dementra called Amual. The struggle to bring peace to the world of powerful energies lies in the hands of these four children and a strange little lizard. And it will not come easy. This journey is only the beginning.
An adventure on a grand scale of four children and their lizard on their journey to the valley of a thousand thoughts. This book is suitable for both girls and boys and will appeal to any one that enjoys an adventure, as well as being science fiction, and creating a wondrous world that takes the reader along on that journey. Looking forward to the next book in the series.
