The cycles of The Worlds of Aldebaran [Aldebaran Betelgeuse and Antares] undoubtedly make up one of the most captivating science fiction series of recent years.

The author tells of humanity's first attempts to colonise distant planets. Kim - who faces many adventures and challenges - begins her trek on the Aldebaran planet. Along the way to Betelgeuse and Antares, she encounters strange creatures, confronts dangers from unknown worlds, and witnesses the damage caused by mankind's insanity.

In this first album, Kim meets Mark, another teenager who has survived the annihilation of their village. Together they set out to find explanations for this terrible catastrophe.

This volume also includes The Blonde.

First cycle: Aldebaran
The first colonists arrived on Aldebaran in 2079. They were to be the first wave of a large influx of pioneers, coming from an overcrowded Earth to live on this apparently very hospitable new world. But an unexpected problem put a stop to the process: The second ship, with thousands of people onboard, disappeared mysteriously in mid-flight. On Earth, scientists were forced to admit that they hadn’t quite mastered the incredibly complex phenomenon that allowed interstellar flights to overcome the speed-of-light barrier. So, all such travel was halted until the theoretical gaps could be filled and going to the stars could be done in complete safety. At the time, no one could have predicted that this interruption of flights would last a whole century. During that time, the first colonists on Aldebaran remained isolated on a wild planet and had to struggle to ensure their survival. As might be expected, they made mistakes, went to some unfortunate extremes and the society they built reflected those: a military dictatorship mixed with an authoritarian church. The story of the Aldebaran cycle covers five years in the life of young Kim Keller, who lives in a small coastal village. She’s only 13 at the beginning, and finds herself quite against her will drawn into a tragic series of events that will force her to grow up quickly.
