One half of Mithya shining, another half still in the dark glide away with the Taranauts on another thrilling, chilling adventure!
Mithya's eight worlds Shyn, Lustr, Sparkl, Glo, Dazl, Shimr, Syntilla and Glytr were plunged into darkness when the wicked Shaap Azur captured all its 32 stars. There was no hope until Zarpa, Tufan and Zvala three bright and brave Taranauts with special gifts - set out to bring back light and cheer to Mithya.
At the end of four missions, the score reads 4-0 in favour of the Taranauts. Nervous and desperate, Shaap Azur's Ograzurs are in attack mode, taking the war to the enemy at impregnable Kay Laas! The attempt fails, and the Taranauts zip away to the icy world of Syntilla, but Eye-in-the-Sky has other tricks up his sleeve.
Will the giant Syntillakos, still grieving over the sudden drying up of their life-giving Bisibrooks Waterway,, rise up to help the Taranauts? Can our heroes negotiate the booby-trapped Bell Trail without a team of kurmoises? Will they be able to overcome the shocking horrors that await them at Lake Shawksar Ovar.
Will the Silvers shine down again on Syntilla? Read and find out!
