The People of Blood
by Loretta Johnson
Years ago, the Arceneigrans slaughtered the old race, claiming the vast coastal jungle as their own. Now, they learn they are not guilty of genocide as they long believed. Heliodore and Sinath arrive just as the Arcen are celebrating their innocence. But there is another visitor, back after a long absence. And the Arcen will soon realize that having their enemies alive is no cause for revelry.
