about

The Princess and the detective return to different receptions in the city of Alisandre Capital: one performs the royal ritual, and the other throws a coffee mug to start the day.  Separate worlds possess a synchrony that grows closer now, woven through the journeys of characters throughout the Pan-Galaxy.

Scion Princess Soleil is contacted by mysterious forces, who give her a hidden history - it becomes clear things are not as they seem in the Pan-Galactic court, from Her Vast Eminence Celeste, Magus the 24th, to the Ascendant pair, Charlotte and Vario.

As #1 public enemy Raev Sturlusson creates stirring emergencies, networks fair and foul weave through the shadows around intergalactic events.  Spheres align and collide in surprising turns, from the detective to the ambiguously employed corporate worker, the people behind them and the people behind them.  What exactly are they up to?  Something big, clearly dangerous, and very scientific.

Catastrophic events involve shipping pilots who happen to know each other, who have time to volunteer; the semi-interested involvement of Dragonkind; and other non-human sentients, the extra-spectrum expressive Aquarii.

From the strategy room to the lost streets, discover Alisandre and the Pan-Galactic Imperium through people within and without, as it all begins to change.

Editorial Reviews

By the time I was a few chapters in, I had a difficult time putting this book down. It reminds me of the science fiction I used to read as a teenager, such as Anne McCaffrey's series Dragonriders of Pern, stories rich in lore and inventive history. I thought this book was merely going to be about space-age intrigue - not quite my style -- but I was very pleasantly surprised by the intricate story that drew me in. The author deftly weaves different viewpoints and experiences together from several characters -- you're never sure where the story might lead you next, but you can't wait to find out. I will be waiting impatiently to get my hands on the next book of this series! (J.R., Amazon)Great Story. Strong characters. Interesting plot. Effective writing style in which the tech and politics flow smoothly - reminds me of Herbert. Looking forward to next in series! Keep an eye on this author. (Sandsage, Amazon)A uniquely told and intertwining story, evoking interstellar mystery and a deadly inheritance, all brimming with artistic vibrancy. (Josh Vogt, author of The Cleaners series & Forge of Ashes)Epic. (Michael Seibert, mechanic at Wingnut Customs)Eva Elasigue's debut novel, Bones of Starlight: Fire on all Sides, is a pan-galactic sci-fi told in lyrical passages that keep the pages turning. The world building develops naturally as the story unfolds and events happen all over the galaxy, with a fantastic host of players from a variety of races and worlds. A stupendous opening to a new space operatic series. (Vanessa MacLellan, author of Three Great Lies)
