A malevolent presence has interrupted Nya's sleep, and she tracks the source to L'Ni's quarters. The only way to wake him is to enter his mind, but what she finds is a nightmare creature trapping him in a battle he can't escape. The creature L'Ni once considered a god wants revenge, and it won't stop until both he and Nya are dead.
When a distress call is caught by the Iludrin, the team can't ignore it, but no one is prepared for what they find. The signal leads them to an unstable star system, where a slaver vessel drifts aimlessly. Rescue teams discover something deadly lurking in the grim corridors, but there is something else on board, something that must not fall into Issan hands.
While the Cartegos undergoes repairs, L'Ni accompanies Nya on a journey into a cave on Karam Three to find the shard left there.

His whole life, Nik has sought to meet Ann, the woman he grew up knowing in his dreams. The opportunity has finally come, but it won't be easy.

However, to save their friends, they may have to make sacrifices.
Nya has discovered a new secret about the Issan plans, and L'Ni isn't about to let the opportunity for key intel slip away from them. Meeting a contact with the information they need to fight the Issan is risky, but it's a risk that everyone on the Cartegos is willing to take. Unfortunately, the best planning can't account for all contingencies, but L'Ni isn't about to leave anyone behind.
Seeing the famous Orast Belt space racing up close is exactly the break Nya needs, but she isn't prepared for trouble. When a criminal organization decides to take the chance on collecting a bounty, not even L'Ni can stop them from taking her. What Nya's captors don't anticipate, however, are her flying skills and the persistence of her friends. The race is on, and there can be only one winner.
After discovering a beacon transmitting from the Cartegos, Zaer is determined to find answers. Her solution is to seek out an info jockey, but nothing ever goes as planned.

No one is ready for the revelation it unlocks.

She doesn't know how she knows about the Feri, only that she can't ignore a warning from a dream...
While the Iludrin has been floating in empty, interstellar space, Shen's experiments have left the ship vulnerable. Two groups of boarders are discovered on the Iludrin, each with their own purpose.

Nya is anxious to finish her mission, but Zaer has a delivery to make. What should be a simple exchange on the quiet, lowly world of Kurtuz turns out to be a trap. A group of Issan supporters are ready to stop the little black box from reaching its intended recipient. When her friends are taken, Nya must join forces with a mysterious stranger to save them before the Issan capture everyone.
Returning to Ethal wasn't what Nik wanted. His leaving wasn't on the best of terms—he defied his family and abandoned his responsibilities. But he has sworn to help Nya complete her mission. Unfortunately, confronting his past is only the beginning of their troubles; Nya's life may be in danger on Ethal.
Despite their narrow escape from the Issan, Zaer's starship, the Da'Nelgur, was severely damaged. Vel and Shen have tried to fix the hyperdrive, and Nya is sound asleep. Their only chance to repair the ship to continue their journey to Ethal is a crime-syndicate-run remote city in interstellar space. What could go wrong?
