Air Command Lieutenant Nova Whiteside is targeted for assassination. Any chance of escape leaves her with no option but to rely on Sethran Kada, a former lover, for help.
In trying to find who is threatening her life, they discover a plot to destroy a distant planet inhabited by creatures that are the key to Nova's survival - and a conspiracy that threatens the stability of the Union Commonwealth.
