It was like seeing the whole changing, blazing galaxy in miniature, and hearing the music of the spheres.
The Singing Suns were the greatest treasure of mankind … but they were hoarded by cunning, subtle, immensely powerful aliens. Only the feared Starwolves of Varna could dream of stealing them … and that was just what they hoped to do ….
