Humanity’s ally — the ancient Palani Empire — is creating colonies to house the neglected refugees. Ruthless war hero Zura Varta now finds herself governing dozens of colonies full of irritating humans.
Zura’s people are dwindling toward extinction. To stave off oblivion, Palani geneticists are creating a generation of Human/Palani hybrids. But those that are ‘too human’ are abandoned; only a lucky few are adopted, like Zura’s daughter Yaella.
Now, hybrid children are being abducted. For impulsive Yaella, finding and rescuing her hybrid ‘family’ gives her the purpose she’s been looking for.
For resolute Zura, the fate of a few hundred children is trivial compared to a widening political crisis that threatens the lives of millions.
Mother and daughter are both headed into uncharted territory. They’ll need to find people they can trust. They’ll need to make Alliances.
