							From the award-winning author of Varjak Paw, comes the incredible story of the one boy who can save the galaxy. Lucky thinks he's an ordinary Human boy. But one night, he dreams that the stars are singing and wakes to find an uncontrollable power rising inside him. Now he's on the run, racing through space, searching for answers. In a galaxy at war, where Humans and Aliens are deadly enemies, the only people who can help him are an Alien starship crew and an Alien warrior girl, with neon needles in her hair. But Lucky is not the only one in danger. His destiny and the fate of the universe are connected in the most explosive way.
Reviews

"Coincidences abound in Said's story, but the plentiful intergalactic action should easily hold readers' attention..." - Publishers Weekly

"An astrological twist on an age-old story; the echoes of Star Wars, The Golden Compass and A Wrinkle in Time should win it fans." - Kirkus Reviews

"As the characters travel, revelations old and new slowly unravel and the secrets of Lucky's own past untangle...For patient sci-fi fans searching for new characters in a unique world." - School Library Journal

"...an inspirational tale of embracing empathy and fighting despair, couched in a familiar 'chosen-one' arc, that works both as an allegory and a straightforward adventure." - Booklist Online

"Breathlessly paced...A powerful story of great scope and ambition, from an expert storyteller." - Daniel Hahn, The Independent on Sunday

"Brilliant...a total pageturner...gloriously produced" - Jacqueline Wilson

"Narrator James Carcaterra's understated performance allows listeners to imagine Lucky's universe as he and his new companions race across the galaxy...Carcaterra excels at voicing the dialogue and Lucky's inner thoughts, and his easygoing narration softens the story's tension, creating a comfortable balance for middle-grade listeners. Phoenix is a good choice for family enjoyment because the audiobook can be accessed on several levels. It's both a straightforward action-adventure tale and a story of overcoming differences to form deep friendships." - AudioFile
