The adventures of Saree, Captain Ruhger, and the crew of Lightwave Fold Transport continue!
In her newly confirmed status as Queen of Lightwave Clutch, Saree plans to train new human clock maintainers to carry on the work she started: tuning fold clocks and smoothing space. But the skills that came so naturally to her prove difficult to transfer, and progress is slow.
When a shady faction in Gov Human decides to take matters into their own hands, Saree, Ruhger and Lightwave’s crew must run for their lives—and the lives of their future children.
Dependable allies refuse to assist them. Neutral parties become adversaries. And every fold seems to drop them into a hotter system with new enemies and more conspiracies. Saree and the crew are running out of time and places to hide.
Sometimes the best defense is attack. Do they dare take the fight to their enemies? And if they do, can they possibly survive?
