Zabdiel Spikeston's mission is clear: Save planet Sangria from the cosmic radiation turning its fertile agricultural land to dust. But the peaceful mission is beset by sabotage from the start, and Zabdiel meets adversity at every turn.
Celestra Rotella, the daughter of a local winemaker, is a welcomed--and very beautiful--distraction from his mission's failings, until the evidence suggests she may have more to do with her planet's downfall than she's letting on. Could the whole Rotella family, who has been helping Zabdiel since he crash-landed in their vineyard, be involved as well?
Zabdiel fears those answers, but knows the people of Sangria are counting on him to save their planet from destruction. He must hunt down those responsible for the trouble on Sangria and bring them to justice, even if it means turning on someone he loves.
