While rescuing a meteor prospector in distress, fighter pilot Kryger is lured into a sophisticated trap and forced to flee to a planet in a newly discovered solar system. The Hullenii bugs pursue him with uncharacteristic vigor, as their glee turns to anguish, and he has no choice but to crash-land on a desert world.
All is not as it seems, and Kryger soon finds himself on a perilous journey with a dwarflike humanoid. They receive a precious gift from the last member of an ancient race called the Scrii. Unbeknownst to Kryger, the gift will bring them face to face with an even deadlier intergalactic enemy.
With plenty of humor along the way, get ready for an exhilarating voyage to intriguing worlds.
