Publisher's summary[]

BEWARE THE MAD CITY! DOCTOR APHRA and her new team have tracked the RINGS OF VAALE to a mysterious planet filled with primordial horror. What's worse, the rings may be cursed…a malediction that could already be tearing Aphra's crew apart. Will they escape the terror of the cursed planet with the precious rings or succumb to the creeping madness pervading the ancient world?

Plot summary[]

After narrowly escaping the vengeful Darth Vader and cutting all ties to her past, rogue archaeologist Doctor Chelli Aphra is back
on the hunt for the rarest, most valuable treasures in the galaxy.

Aphra and her team were hired by the wide-eyed student Detta Yao to find the Rings of Vaale, mysterious ancient artifacts of
untold power. For Yao, they're her ticket to academic renown. For Aphra, the rings—should they exist—could be the biggest
payday of her career.

There's just one tiny but extremely dangerous detail—the insanely rich and powerful Ronen Tagge, scion of the infamous Tagge
family, has his eyes on the prize. And Tagge's so ruthless that even Aphra refuses to do business with him.


Doctor Aphra 2 was initially solicited for an April 29, 2020 release,[3] but it was delayed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.[4]
