On the outer rim of the Milky Way Galaxy, planet ESL-37659 (Blarm) spins its way around twin suns.
The heavily forested planet is home to an indigenous species named (in the galactic common language) Blarmlings.
Blarmlings, for the most part, resemble the Teddy Bears of old Earth, though they have opposable thumbs, dense silver fur, and glowing purple eyes. These adorable little people (Oh, don’t you dare call them animals) also possess the ability to read minds.
When Oolo and Lart, two of the Blarmlings, are taken captive by a galactic research conglomerate, it sets in motion events that will change the galaxy forever, and bring together two star-crossed lovers.
