Plot Summary: Thor and Rai are twins living a privileged and protected life on the space colony Juno. It is the year 2436 AD, and humans have colonized the Vulcan star system and altered its planets to be more like their distant home, Earth. One day, the twins' sheltered life is shattered when both of their parents are murdered and the two boys are kidnapped and left to die on Kimaera, a top-secret prison planet, reserved only for the worst criminals. Kimaera is also known as "The Beast King Planet," after the warrior who has defeated all others in order to rule the entire planet. In this harsh environment, where carnivorous plants thrive and day and night each last for 181 earth days, the twins must fight to survive and attempt to find out the reason for their exile.
