As the fires of war die on distant Talveras, old wounds begin to fester. When ancient prejudices threaten to tear the planet apart; a contingent of Federal Commissars are tasked with holding the fracturing populace together.
However one Commissar, haunted by his own destructive past, must decide the future of a planet as he becomes embroiled in a plot that threatens to carve out Talveras' very heart!
There are no heroes. There are no angels. There is only one truth:
Nothing is fair in love or war.
