Refractions of Frozen Time finds the Brightstars, your favorite space-faring family, more separated than ever before. Laren is in the process of being exiled to the galaxy's ultimate security prison onboard an automated spacecraft. Creena, her little brother, Deven, and her mother, Sharra, remain in the Caverns, while Dirck and Win report to the Clique base at Apoca Canyon.
Deven discovers a new crystal which, combined with cristobalite, unlocks the portal between Local and Universal time, offering the potential Creena has been looking for to reunite the family at last. There's one problem, however. Teleporting results in the correct location, but the arrival time seems to be random, which has risky implications. Before she can unravel the mystery, however, Integrator commandos find their underground hideout, forcing a harrowing escape loaded with unexpected consequences. Believing they're permanently lost, the dark and lonely days that follow change Dirck forever as fate plays out a hand dealt on Earth years before, ultimately revealing the crystals' incredible secret.
Onboard the Bezarna Express, Laren's efforts to exploit the ship's dirty little secret backfire, putting him more at risk than ever before, his survival dependent on ground intervention. Little does he know that the solution has been with him all along, quietly lurking in a device that operates strictly on the principle "If you don't ask, you don't get." Meanwhile, Augustus Troy, Laren's long-time nemesis, gains more power than ever before coupled with being armed with a weapon capable of wiping out anyone opposed to his despotic goals.
Do the Brightstars have what it takes to survive, much less prevail at their final confrontation with the Integrator and his evil proponents? Or will the family’s longed-for reunion take place in another dimension of time and space? Find out in this suspense-laden conclusion to the Star Trails Tetralogy.

Great finish to an action packed series!
Truly an amazing and exceptionally well-written series. Marcha Fox captured my attention and kept it through all four books. The last book ties up all loose ends neatly with a powerful punch!
I've been rooting for the Brightstar family and sitting on the edge of my seat hoping somehow everything would come together and work out. The story is a balance between good and evil as well as some truly disgusting characters and some very human characters who make mistakkes. It's the story of a family struggling to survive and find a way to be together again. It's packed with action and suspense. TW Ashwrth is amazing. His pacing is good, his voice is clear and consistent. I also love the sound effects.
I recomend this series to anyone who loves a good sci-fi or fantasy! Well-done!
