During a time when men think the stars are little children of the moon, thirteen-year-old Zim-ri is sold into slavery by his uncaring, debt-ridden father. After he is taken from his home, Zim walks in line with the other captives to the noble city of Ur, where he will learn his fate.

Along the way, an old woman from his village stumbles in the line ahead of him. Zim rushes to Mara’s side and promises the guards he will help her on the journey. As the two quickly bond, Mara teaches Zim how to see the world differently, deal with his fear of demons, and celebrate his talents. When Zim and the group finally arrive in the ancient city, Zim does his best to fit in while he and his ox work in the shadow of the great ziggurat where illness, sandstorms, and the unfamiliar laws make existence a challenge. More adventures wait outside Ur’s walls, including robbers and a treasure—but Zim longs for just one thing: a family who loves him unconditionally.

In this compelling young adult tale, a teen sold into slavery must build a new life for himself, thwart evil villains, and save a life—all while searching for the kind of happiness and acceptance he has always wanted.
