When she wakes up at Starfire Tower, life is almost perfect for Nya, even if she is late for a class and her parents have planned a surprise visit. Being a Keeper in training isn't easy; and being the child of a Crystal Keeper is awkward, but it has its benefits. When her father is called to a first-contact situation with a new race, Nya is included in the meeting, but there is something sinister about the emissary. She doesn't know how she knows about the Feri. She only knows that the dreams of another life are so real that she can't ignore the warning about the visitors to Inar'Ahben who want to know about the powers of the Crystal Keepers.
