An imaginitive and exciting space opera adventure from science fiction grand master Robert Silverberg.
Yakoub was once the legendary king of the Rom– the only pilots capable of steering ships safely between the many worlds of the galaxy. Weary and proud, Yakoub has relinquished his power and lives in exile on a distant, icy world. In his absence, chaos fills the vacuum of power. The fate of the entire galactic empire hangs in the balance. Yakoub must journey across the cosmos and fight to regain his throne. Only then can he fulfill his dream: to return his people to their ancestral home of Romany Star. The Rom need the Yakoub of legend once more. Can the once-mighty king overcome time and tyranny and inspire his people in their darkest hour?
