When it comes to high-flying adventure, political intrigue and dark romance Sinclair has it aced! This surprising
tale is filled with shifting loyalties, deception and jaw-dropping flying maneuvers. The characters in this
complex novel are all faced with
the realization that what they have always believed may not be the truth
and that powerful emotions can be stronger than any mechanical implants.

The newly formed alliance between the Triad and the United Coalition is put to the test when Captain Tasha Sebastian is made second in command to her former nemesis, biocybe Admiral Branden Kel-Paten. In all their previous skirmishes, Tasha has always believed that Kel-Paten, who is part machine, is incapable of emotion, but events soon disprove that. To Tasha's shock, she learns it's possible that Kel-Paten more than likes her.

During a mission, they rescue wounded renegade telepath Jace Serafino, who is wanted badly by the Triad. Then Tasha learns from Jace about a dangerous plot that could split the alliance apart. The question then becomes: Can they convince the highly programmed Kel-Paten of the danger?
