Synopsis

After stumbling through a one-way dimensional gate constructed eons earlier by the enigmatic and nearly extinct Ykx, Skeen has finally found her way off Mistommerk. Despite numerous trials and great turmoil, Skeen is at long last free, with a ship and crew that includes her new friends, shapeshifter Timka and Ykx keyholder Lipitero.

But freedom always has a price, and Skeen must pay for her deliverance. She'll have to make her way through a treacherous galaxy to locate the planet Rallen--which may or may not actually exist--gather up any remaining Ykx she happens to find there, and bring them back to Mistommerk before the gate closes permanently.

Their journey is about to take Skeen and her crewmates through some of the nastiest corners of a particularly nasty galaxy and towards an inevitable confrontation with the war vessels of a powerful and distinctly unfriendly Empire. But the biggest threat of all is the solar system itself: Its sun is about to go supernova, which could result in a very explosive finale indeed for Skeen and her space-going misadventures.
