The Empire is back. How can the violence be stopped?
Alcyone and Maia – the only systems left in the Pleiadian cluster still free of reptilian control. The last time the Drahks appeared, the Pleiadians lost the Meropean system to the Empire's superior technology. This time, the two fleets are armed with something new: sentient starships, psychic abilities, a commitment to non-violence, and the determination to find an effective defense against the reptilian menace.
After a warband invades Maia's smallest outworld, Alcyoni pilot Rhys Talrésian finds himself plagued by abusive nightmares and guilt until an elusive feminine presence in his dreams helps him discover he is being attacked psychically by the invading warlord, Biak. When the sadistic Drahk moves into his waking world and sends an assailant after one of his closest friends, Rhys steels his resolve and pursues the dreamwalker, instinctively knowing she is the key to opening his own abilities.
Biak steps up his malicious attacks and prepares to advance his invasion into both systems. The Pleiadians search for a bridge of communication with Drahkian captives taken in the battle and the secrets to unlocking the Drahks' technology. As odd synchronicities begin to mount, it becomes increasingly clear that the Pleiadians have unseen allies steering them toward unexpected solutions.
–"You've grown up with the fear. Now the Empire is knocking down the back door. Find a new game, Rhys."
