The Visitants have lost one of their 5 'Goods' and need Jawake urgently as millions of lives are at stake if he can not be found. Zacred sent out many Visitants from their home cloud to no avail. It was decided that they would have to send for Helen James to see if she could find him. Weting takes Helen to Jawake's planet Yungr so that she can begin her search. Jawake was last seen in the market place so Helen has a starting point. Unlike markets on Earth this market only sold weapons of many descriptions but mainly swords and the like. It was at one of these swords that Helen was given 'The Ruby Sword' by Luker, the stall holder as a payment for finding his friend Jawake. It was not until later that Helen discovered that the sword had magical powers. It appears that Jawake had ben arrested and taken to the planets most secure prison - YongHul. On her way to the prison to secure Jawake's release she meets up with Druken who offers to show her the way. Can Helen secure Jawake's freedom or will the lives of the far off planet be lost? It is then that Helen first realises the power of the Ruby Sword.
