The bomb is ticking. The one she planted.
For the past five years, Ruma Nuway has been plotting, planning to leave Doonya, the human planet.
Now's her chance.
With the Misguided mercenary by her side, she stands guard over the bound Zrivisi crew and the alien ship at her complete disposal.
The hard part is done. All she needs now are the launch codes from the Zrivisi captain before the bomb goes off.
When the captain refuses, sending her Misguided companion past the edge, Ruma faces impossible choices.
When all choices are terrible, what real choice does she have left?
