Two years ago, Dr. Cherijo Torin’s ship crash-landed on the ice-covered world of Akkabarr. Struggling to survive in the hostile landscape, she has no memory of her past. Now her husband Duncan Reever has finally located her—and he will stop at nothing to bring Cherijo home.
But Akkabarr is a world in conflict. Slaves forced to live on the planet’s surface are rebelling against their masters, the Windlords who rule from sub-orbital cities far above the harsh climate. And on this war-torn world, Duncan Reever will discover that his greatest obstacle to reuniting with Cherijo may be Cherijo herself.
