What if everything you believe is a lie?

Maia has spent most of her life trying to run away from her past. When a chance encounter lands Maia in a dubious peace initiative, she has to walk down a road she had hoped never to tread. Little does she know that the real truth about her long-deceased mother is somewhere down this path.

But before she gets to that, Maia will discover true friendship, face an unimaginable evil, and fight her deepest fears to save the world she loves.

A planet on the brink of extinction. An enemy from the dark side of the universe. Only one girl and her secret stand between them.

Maia and the Xifarian Conspiracy is the first book of the Lightbound Saga, the MG/YA science fiction series that features non-stop action, unexpected plot twists, captivating characters, and a spunky heroine. If you like fast-paced adventure, thrilling new worlds, and epic storylines, then you’ll love this page-turning coming-of-age series from author S. G. Basu.

A delightful story of adventure and learning to love something new.

Colorful illustrations make this a must-read for young children who are just forming their understanding of love in action and different cultures.
