The science novel’s main protagonist Captain Anna Urissa is an adventurer who is also one of the most gifted members of the Guild. She explores the deep space, where dangers lurk. She dares to go where no one has ever gone before. She is a true citizen of Arseina, which, significantly, is a city named after the God of Endurance.
In the novel, Captain Anna sets out into the deep space exploration with three other crews, who are also her favorite – Orto, Onno and Uanne. As they set out to explore the unknown, they have no idea how the voyage is going to change their lives forever.
Anna combines beauty with brains and courage, but her beautiful face masks a wounded mind. Her journeys are actually personal; they are her way to search for the answer to a question which haunts her. She fights her fears and nightmares while seeking something that is long lost. The novel is a journey novel as well, and the question is whether she will find her answer at the end of her voyage, where a new plant awaits the crew, not without dangers. There is an element of intrigue as well, as the readers are made to wonder whether Anna and her crew will make it back to Arseina alive, and whether she will find her answers, thereby finally laying her fears to rest.
