Katlin Gindred na Bortheran, princess and heir to the Tayan Empire, has been brought back from the dead. The most expensive genes available were used to create her original body, and thousands of years of careful breeding, paired with a lifetime of intensive training, have made her a brilliant pilot, instructor, leader and fighter. But one battle against the ships of the Silerian Empire ended in a violent crash-landing that brought her to her demise. Katlin must put aside her humiliation and surmount her defeat if she is to resume her duties as princess and regain respect, but a message from a stranger seems to imply that her death was not quite as she had thought. In a universe torn apart by two warring empires, Katlin must decide which side is really worth fighting for, and which of her instincts to trust.
