In the second book of K’Jin’s mission, he adapts to his new reality.
K’Jin’s determination to see the end of the Witch Hunter realm is flamed by his inability to continue the mission set for him by High Councilor RinTorl. Srin Master H’Jax took him on as an apprentice when his talents with the power colors were released, but K’Jin’s development has progressed so quickly that he has become the second highest ranking master on the planet.
When it comes time to free Sheltered Six from the witch hunters, K’Jin is put in charge of the team that will free the southern continent while Master H’Jax takes the much larger task of freeing the northern continent. But freeing the planet and defending it when the witch hunters return to take it back leaves them seriously short of masters and desperate for aid.
After it is revealed that portions of the former Frin and Tali sectors remain free of the witch hunter rule, K’Jin is sent to ask them for help. But the nearest free solar systems are those of the former Frin sector where Sawtan’s rules are still embraced, and K’Jin must risk all to gain their support.
