"Jaibriol ruled the Eubian Concord: over two trillion people across more than a thousand worlds and habitats. Kelric ruled the Skolian Imperialate. War had come before - ten years ago, Jaibriol had lost his parents in the final battle of the Radiance War between the Concord and the Imperialate - and it might come again, devastating vast swathes of the galaxy.
"Neither Jaibriol nor Kelric wanted war, but neither was complete master of his realm. And each hid a secret that, if revealed, might be his downfall.
Jaibriol was a secret psion, with telepathic abilities, and to be a psion in the Eubian Concord was to be a contemptible slave . . . Kelric, years ago, had disappeared for nearly two decades. He had been a prisoner and slave on the planet Coban -- if the Skolian Imperialate knew of his captivity, there would be demands for vengeance . . .
"Neither man knew how much longer he could keep his secret - nor how much longer they could hold back the threat of a war that could incinerate hundreds of inhabited worlds. "; 7¾" - 9¾" Tall; Signed by Author
