A galactic empire in turmoil . . . Rival clans fighting for supremacy . . . Dark secrets bursting into the light . . .
Time’s running out for Carina Lin. She’s given up her merc life in the hope of finding others like her—mages. But it’s a dicey endeavor. She can’t stay in one place too long because if her powers are revealed, she faces slavery and torture.
A clue has led her to the home planet of one of the most powerful clans in the galaxy. After searching fruitlessly for information about her long-lost kindred, Carina decides it’s time to move on. Fate has other ideas.
Carina is sucked back into space warfare and becomes the meat in the sandwich between warring clans. If she plays her cards right, she can save those dear to her. If she loses, death will seem inviting.
