(From the publisher):
His birth had been shrouded in mystery, and all Flinx knew of himself was that he'd been abandoned by those who had spawned him.
Raised by Mother Mastiff in the marketplace of Drallar, Flinx eventually discovered that his unknown parents had bequeathed to him a curious legacy... a legacy of extraordinary mental powers that were both an incalculable asset and a most dangerous liability.
This legacy would lead him--and his potent protector, the minidrag Pip--into the clutches of one of the most depraved and powerful men in the galaxy... on to a harrowing search for the truth about his birth... and out of one world into another on his most dangerous adventure ever.
