Azsla is accompanied by four "fugitive" slaves, who assume she is like them and are unaware of her undercover espionage mission to learn what weapons the escaped slaves from her home planet of Rama had on Zor. The assumption her leaders have made is that the 200,000 rebellious slaves on Zor will return to free those left behind on Rama. She suppresses her Quaint skills to dominate like all Firsts can and masquerades as a lowly underfirst slave. However, her vessel fails and it appears she and her team are facing death. Jadlan, Micoo and Rak are in ejected pods, but hers fails. Kali dies getting Azsla freed in her pod; she knows he was an expendable underfirst so why the tears? From official release/information:
Book Description: Is she an indispensable ally or his worst enemy?
Is she better off with him or without him?
With a cataclysm of deadly proportions looming, Derrek and Azsla must overcome their distrust, suspicion and opposing loyalties. But while uniting forces might save a planet, working together might tear them apart or bring them together. Forever.
