Emily, her brother Navin and their bunch of Star Wars inspired friends; humans, robots, animals and elves, head to Cielis, the home of the Guardian Council of Stonekeepers, a group of the most powerful Stonekeepers. Emily hopes she’ll find help there in her battle against the Elf King.

You want to know the first clue something is wrong when you arrive in a strange city? When your host separates you from your friends. Very Bad.Instead of getting any help, or even anyone to listen to her fears about the rise of the Elf King, Emily finds herself entered into a competition between Stonekeepers to earn a spot on the Council. It’s a little like Hunger Games actually…kids battling it out in a do or die competition. The problem is, Emily doesn’t WANT to be on the Council and she doesn’t want to fight either. But someone in the group IS looking for a fight and is willing to sell integrity itself to win. Emily might not be looking for a fight, but the fight is looking for her.

Meanwhile, her loyal band of friends is on the hunt for her. You can divide this group, but it won’t last long, and don’t think conquering them will be easy either! Note: Miskit STILL my favorite and he isn’t even IN this volume that much. I need a loyal pink bunny robot friend with brains. He’s got Emily’s back plus, he knows how to drive and repair space ships…Chewbacca style. Hopefully more of him in #5.
