Khorii, the rebellious daughter of the near-mythic Acorna and her lifemate, Aari, must contend with an overwhelming legacy to forge a path of her own through a universe filled with new adversaries and adventure. In "First Warning", she became a hero in her own right as she fought to save the universe from a mysterious plague that not even the healing powers of the Linyaari could stop. Now she and her genius android 'brother' must find the malevolent cause of the deadly disease before those behind it cripple the star system.show more
