They had survived the Margins, but could they keep their promise to rescue those held captive on a distant, violence-filled world?
The price of breaking with tradition comes high, as does the ongoing protection offered by the military. And now, Carrie, Kusac, Kaid, and T'Chebbi must undertake a rescue mission to the distant world of Jalna to save present-day Sholans and humans who have been trapped there, as well as a Sholan pair from the age of the Cataclysm. What they can't foresee is that the Valtegans planted the seeds of destruction on Jalna long ago, transforming the locals into a dangerously unstable race and threatening the telepathic powers of Sholans and Humans alike.
