Orphaned at the age of thirteen, Ester DuTain dreams of the day she can leave her small town and join the ranks of the prestigious planetary force, the Rean Coalition of Rangers. Ever since bandits slaughtered her family, she has wanted to become a ranger so she can stop atrocities like what happened to her family from happening again.
However, before she can become a ranger, she has to outrank the hundreds of other ranger hopefuls. To make matters worse, she can no longer stay at the orphanage once she turns eighteen, meaning she has to get in soon, while she still has a roof over her head. She has the will and determination, but she can't afford to get distracted.
As Ester runs full speed towards her goals, strong forces work in the background. Forces that may prove to be stronger than anything she has ever faced. Will Ester's actions save her world or be the catalyst that destroys it?
The Distance Between is book one in the Ceapeaya's Awakening trilogy, a trilogy about the tangled fates of two families rooted in a mystery that could destroy their galaxy.
