When a young girl from Earth falls in love with a handsome stranger, she becomes a pawn in an interstellar war. In the distant future, the Skolian Empire rules one third of the human galaxy and is the most powerful of all empires. The ruling family has the power of telepathy, and through it, the ability to communicate faster than light across interstellar space. But their most determined enemy, the traders, who thrive on human pain, need to interbreed with a Skolian to gain their powers. And now they have her.

Professional reviews

"The continuation of the Skolian Empire series features a young Californian girl who befriends a representative from a parallel universe who has stumbled briefly into her world. Anna Fields creates clear pictures of a variety of characters with a range of motives, including "bionic" humans and computers whose artificial intelligence gives them more personality than some of the people. She moves easily between them, at the same time giving them distinct voices. Once again, Fields brings her formidable narration skills to a story of adventure and political intrigue.
