When Al Reos leaves a ruined Earth he makes a decision that will follow him through the ages. It affects his descendants until the last is born - Serafina Reos, the only female. Upon her shoulders lay all his sins and she must make a decision that will ultimately bring life in the Joiran Cluster back full circle. Will she undo the thousands of years that has been carried out to complete her ancestor’s work to protect the Joirans from an ancient enemy, the Sharith, or will she make a decision against the good of the many?
