working at a small observatory in the Starfall Mountains beyond the
metropolis of Anduruna. Miri is the only person Hal trusts to understand
a dangerous secret: Hal can see all wavelengths of light. Hal uses his
superpower only when they are free from prying eyes that could report
them to the authorities.The lives of Hal and Miri
quickly change one night, however, when a meteor crashes into the nearby
mountains. When they set out to retrieve the fallen star, it quickly
becomes apparent that things are not what they seem. What appeared to be
an ordinary meteor is in fact a strange power source that Hal and Miri
are not the only ones looking for.
In order to
rescue his closest companion, Hal must not only unravel a mystery that
has eluded his people for ages, but also face unsavory characters from
his own past. Can Hal, the Wayward Astronomer, harness his supernatural powers to rescue his friend before time runs out?

illustrated by the creator of Dreamkeepers, David Lillie. It is an
