When Killashandra Ree joined the mysterious Heptite Guild, she knew that she would be forever changed. Crystal singing brought ecstasy and pain, near-eternal life . . . and gradual loss of memory. But Killashandra had a lot of painful memories she could afford to lose. Forgetting other singers; names and faces and needing a locator to find her own apartment were only small annoyances. What she hadn't counted on was the loneliness she felt when her heart still remembered what her mind had forgotten. Fortunately, someone still cared enough to try and salvage what was left of Killashandra's mind. But she would have to learn to open herself - to another person, and to all her unpleasant memories . . .
