The project to gain Earth’s ratification into the Dil-Terra Interplanetary Alliance has stalled. Doubts assail renowned Chikondran diplomat, Minister Warnach Sirinoya, when he meets Sandra Warner, the young Terran administrative specialist assigned to help steer the massive project back on course. Never could he have imagined their first rocky encounter would alter the direction of his life, ushering him from private turmoil and personal disgrace. Neither could he have dreamed that she would inexplicably draw him into legendary mysteries on his own world.
