       Additional Information  
      For fifteen years, Ben Keylord has felt anguish and guilt over losing his only son. The boy's mother insists that there was nothing anybody could have done to save their son and the other newborns from a malfunctioning mega-computer and the hundreds of service androids under its control. But the guilt, the haunting memories, and his incredible sense of loss, proved to be too much for him to live with. His love for his son had never faded in the thousands of light-years separating them. It was a distance of space-time surmountable, but only with the science and technology he used to know, years ago, on his former planet-Planet Blue. But now he was stuck on a hot, desert planet, a refugee slaving on a farm to feed his family. No science and only the most basic technology could be found on this dry, yellow world. But, there was an ancient form of magic called the Power of Azron, and Ben Keylord would let nothing and nobody stand in his way in his attempt to acquire the use of this power-not the evil Ghorelian god Mandahn Sandsahn, not an angry Ghorelian convict, and not even a deadly climb up a crumbling mountain spire. Whatever the odds, life in his favor or death nipping at his heels, he would try his best to climb the haunted Black Mountains to acquire the "Power," then attempt to reunite with the son he has loved forever and missed for too long.
