Doing a favor for a friend shouldn’t be a big deal. But when Kaleida’s former Guild instructor asks her to meet with his associate Maurice on Anthris-Four Station, the meeting ends with Maurice dead and Kaleida in possession of a stolen object and a deadly secret.
Kaleida is summoned to give her version of the events to the Dimension Runners Council, where she finds the members unaccountably hostile. Somewhere there’s a traitor who knows more about her secret than she does.
While some members of the Council view her with suspicion, others offer her the opportunity to challenge the ancient ruins of Cantor City and harness the mysterious power called starsong, or die trying.
