ADA HOFFMANN is the author of the space opera novels THE OUTSIDE and THE FALLEN, as well as dozens of speculative short stories and poems. She is an autistic self-advocate, an adjunct professor of computer science, a former semi-professional soprano, tabletop gaming enthusiast, and LARPer. She lives in eastern Ontario.


Beneath the waters by the islands of Gelle-Geu, a star sleeps restlessly. The celebrated new starkeeper Ranra Kekeri, who is preoccupied by the increasing tremors, confronts the problems left behind by her predecessor.

Meanwhile, the poet Er gra Lil n, who merely wants to be left alone, is repeatedly asked by their ancestor Sember to take over the starkeeping helm. Sember insists upon telling Lil n mysterious tales of the deliverance of the stars by the goddess Bird.

When Ranra and Lil n meet, sparks begin to fly. An unforeseen configuration of their magical deepnames illuminates the trouble under the tides. For Ranra and Lil n, their story is just beginning; for the people of Gelle-Geu, it may well be too late to save their home.
