Blancapaw ('Blan' to friends and family) has no ambition to become a power in the world, but she is forced to react to events beyond her control. She must find ways of coping with those events and then to take control of them. She is not without resources. She has a brilliant mind and a talent for invention and problem solving. She has compassion and a strong ethical code. Moreover, she has a destiny preordained.

It records how Blan, a village girl fascinated by scientific enquiry, discovers the Occidental Communicor, a powerful underground installation created by extraterrestrial visitors and part of a legacy that will greatly impact her future.

She manages to get away from the pirates, but treachery places her in the hands of Black Knight, the huge and terrifying enemy leader. Unexpected events and a strange power enable her to escape and to rescue the exiled grand vizier, a very ancient and learned man. But Blan soon finds herself in the midst of war where she must use her brilliant mind and knowledge of science to challenge the might of the enemy force as it strikes at Proequa, a key member of the Free Alliance...
