"There's a slight problem," Teeg San Gerxon announced as he appeared next to Rylend.
"What's that?" Vik asked. I already knew from reading it in Teeg's face. Irina's body had been found; I recognized her image in Teeg. He still didn't know her identity, but testing on her body revealed that she died of radiation poisoning, and that she was originally from Old Earth....
After his escape from Earth in the past, D'slay appears in the Reth Alliance - in the future.
Zaria can only follow D'slay's trail of crimes; something - or someone - prevents her from finding him.
Is D'slay the real villain, or is he only a distraction for other, more sinister plans?
When it becomes apparent that important hub worlds are in danger, Lissa, Reah, Zaria, and many others must form a blood alliance to combat the coming chaos. Will their efforts prove effective, or has the plot against them been laid too well?
