When hostile aliens destroy his planet, Toomin flees with a band of survivors to search for a new home. Their journey brings them to Father, a mind-absorbing creature, who kills the Ketrans but keeps Toomin alive for his amusement. For centuries, Father torments Toomin with alien games until the Ketran discovers how to absorb the minds Father has collected, depriving Father of his power. After freeing himself, Toomin uses his enhanced intelligence to construct a cybernetic ship that prolongs his life, allows him to explore the cosmos, and grants him the power to aid entire civilizations. But when Toomin encounters a powerful being obsessed with bringing death to the universe, he must find a way to use his powers to defeat his foe -- without destroying the worlds he has sworn to protect. How he chooses to do this will forever change his outlook on life -- and transform him into the being called the Ellimist.
