Slipslide down into the deep dark heart of Shimr and into the Taranauts' most dangerous mission yet! Mithya's eight worlds Shyn, Lustr, Sparkl, Glo, Dazl, Shimr, Syntilla and Glytr were plunged into darkness when the wicked Shaap Azur captured all its 32 stars. There was no hope until Zarpa, Tufan and Zvala three bright and brave Taranauts with special gifts set out to bring back light and cheer to Mithya. After five successful missions each of which has tested their wits, courage and team spirit the Taranauts head for the blazing hot world of Shimr in search of the golden Citrines. Meanwhile, determined to stop them, a brand new army of Mithya's Most Ruthless goes into full combat mode. Will all three Taranauts make it safely through the Bhoolabyrinth? Can Tufan survive the oxdrogen-deprived darkness of the underground city of Oop R'Ville? What is the secret of the Drip-Trip Cave? And how in Kay Laas will they tackle the most unexpected problem of them all mithyakos who don't want their stars rescued? Will the Citrines return to Tara? Read and find out!
