Lest Darkness Prevail: Dare to Live the Light by Sandra Valencia
Meanwhile, history careens along a perilous path. Dedicated diplomats confront growing risks as they doggedly pursue peaceful initiatives. Warily monitoring events that threaten the worlds they serve, leaders conclude that the strategies of a shadowy enemy are working to undermine the stability of the Dil-Terra Interplanetary Alliance.

When an old fairy tale is recalled, they realize that bits and pieces of the unsettling present appear oddly similar to the ancient legend. Does coincidence play games with the enchanted story? Or does this fable ring bells of warning?
