Liora Day, half-human, half mess-with-her-and-you’ll-die Damaclan, had been thrown onto a rough path at a very early age. But when she is broken out of a cage by Devren, the young captain of the SS Kratos, she is shown that perhaps humanity does have a heart. The Kratos is set on a mission to rescue fallen surveyors from the Revolutionaries, and Liora is given the choice to follow her Damaclan instincts, or trust Devren’s dark eyes and captivating smile that promise an adventure unlike any she has ever experienced.

Liora fought down a rise of panic. They were in a tiny room handcuffed to rings in the wall. It sent chills across her skin at the thought that she had just traded one prison for another.
“Why didn’t you fight him?” she asked quietly.
Devren glanced at her. “Officer Straham was just doing his job.”
“You could have beaten him.”
She should have beaten him, she reminded herself. Her jaw clenched. When Captain Metis turned them over, it was only Devren’s minute shake of the head that kept her from ending any hope Officer Straham had of ever shooting a gun again. As it was, she had obeyed and could only blame herself for the position she was in.
“Beating him would have only made things worse. I committed treason by bringing you on board. An action like that risks the life of every member of this ship. It wasn’t my decision to make.”
Liora made herself ask the question that burned inside her. “So why did you?”
Devren let out a quiet breath and averted his gaze. It was a few minutes before he said, “Tell me I risked my career for a good reason.”
