While exploring alone, a young boy finds a mysterious cave deep in the woods. Unafraid of the darkness, he journeys below the earth, and among glowing mushrooms and veins of gold, he meets a great beast with a fierce hello.
Soot, a mechanic expert and space-traveler, is stranded on a primitive planet where her science is considered magic. With the help of Dipper, her bonded star-spirit, she has spent years rebuilding her ship from scavenged materials. Now, at a time when starlume is feared and Luminals like her are hunted, the pair must find a way to return to the stars amid the growing unrest of a country on the brink of a rebellion.
As tensions escalate and the city turns violent, Soot has to decide how much she is willing to sacrifice to secure her own freedom.
