In spite of being regarded by her race as a misfit and a rogue, Doella is asked to secretly save her home planet from powerful foes once more. While doing so she receives another gift that has been waiting for her for aeons, guarded by a hidden horror. In saving Varan again, she loses that which she loves most. But she must still fulfil her promise to discover what has happened to the Hyclos.
