In a run-down spaceport, assassin Thadow hunts for a bag of stolen pearls to prove his worth to the head of the Guild of Transmuters. Meanwhile, two spoiled teenagers, Trilia and Lateron, pass the time while their mothers' spaceship is in port by harassing the locals and stealing things from them as part of a scavenger hunt. Then their paths cross, and life will never be the same again for either Thadow or Trilia and Lateron.

A short story of youthful mischief with serious consequences.
Thadow, the Transmutor. He was the only likable character in this story.
I might, though I found that the character voices were not as distinct as I would like.
As it is short, just over an hour, this wasn't an issue.
Interesting science fiction creation.
When the domani children pickpocket the "pearls" and kill the owner.
Loved her characters and the way she brings a subtle drama and tension to the story.
I really enjoyed listening to Melissa Epp. I would love to hear more books read by her!
