Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0615480845, Paperback)A Kra'aken warship, severely damaged in an attack that may have destroyed the home planet, carries its near-dead pilot through a strange portal. Maintained in stasis for nearly 150 years by the ship's Artificial Intelligence, Prince Helrazr is awakened in an alien galaxy. His mission: to find Kra'aken survivors or die. Lady Rak’khiel, a toddler sent in a survival pod to escape Kra'aken's destruction, also passes through the hidden portal only to crash-land on the planet Olica, a primitive world ruled by Kra’aken’s deadliest enemies. Found by a childless woman who hides her from those who would kill her, Rak'khiel grows to puberty ignorant of her heritage and the danger surrounding her. The two meet as Rak'khiel is simultaneously fleeing for her life and changing into a Kra'aken adult. Although she desperately needs his help, their alliance is fragile – complicated by differences that may turn them against each other and laden with perils they may not survive.

A hundred-years before, Kra'aken warriors raided Earth. Now the Terrans come to extract revenge for their losses, killing every Kra'aken citizen and decimating their homeworld. Prince Helrazr is a starfighter pilot whose ship is severely damaged in the final attack. Wounded and unconscious, his ship tumbles through an alien portal, unknown and uncharted by Kra'aken scientists. Maintained in stasis for 150 years, in a galaxy far from his own, the prince awakens to find he has no way to return home. His mission: to find Kra'aken survivors. Or die. Lady Rak'khiel, one of many Kra'aken children placed in stasis, in survival cocoons, also passes through the hidden portal. Her damaged craft crashes on Olica, a primitive world ruled by Kra'aken's deadliest enemies. Found by a childless woman who hides the toddler from those who would kill her, the girl grows to puberty unaware of her true heritage or of the danger that surrounds her. The two survivors meet as Rak'khiel is simultaneously changing into a Kra'aken adult and fleeing for her life. Although she desperately needs the prince's help, their alliance is fragile - complicated by the social differences which may turn them against each other and laden with perils that the two young people may not survive.
