Davi Rhii helped his enslaved people fight for their freedom and earn equality, but now that they are equal, they’ve found freedom and acceptance don’t necessarily go hand-in-hand. When assassins begin killing and terrorizing Vertullians, even Davi’s family and friends, they face a renewal of old enmity all over again. Davi, Farien and Yao reunite to investigate the murders, finding their lives and friendships threatened by what they discover. Meanwhile, with Xalivar back seeking revenge on Davi and all those who defied him, the new High Lord Councilor, Tarkanius, Lord Aron, and Davi find themselves fighting all over again to preserve the unity of the Borali Alliance, while even many of their allies and friends work against them to tear it apart. Suddenly, the future of the entire system as at stake, unless they can find those responsible and bring them to justice.
