He longs for something to happen to give his life meaning. His mentor speaks of revolution; but Hobarsson knows he's left out. Now a telepathic voice gives Hobarsson the type of orders he has always wanted to hear. To arms! But... Disaster! Chaos follows as Hobarsson breaks free from his former life to journey with a fugitive alien - and the mysterious Mrs Grange - into perilous confrontations.
