Rust is just one planet among many in the Empire of Human Unity. It's nothing special...except that it's home to an unknown boy who may be the most powerful Silent telepath ever born.
For now, only Kendi Weaver of the Children of Irfan knows about the boy. But power like that can't remain hidden for long--and every government in the galaxy will be willing to go to war to control him.
