Kyla Farmer doesn’t enjoy living as a demon-human hybrid with no marketable skills on an alien planet, but at least she has her health. After a rocky start, she tries to settle into her new life, hide her origins, and learn to fit in.
However, hiding would be much easier if Kyla wasn’t trapped in a psychic network with people researching how to summon more demons like her. Each new finding leads them closer to discovering Kyla’s true origins and making her the subject of their merciless investigations.
When the source of their psychic connection disappears and war presses toward her adopted home town, Kyla must recover it if she hopes to free herself. While searching, she confronts Wiley, once her murderer and now maybe her savior, and learns the universe is far smaller and more dangerous than she once believed.
To confront these new threats, Kyla teams up with an amoral assassin who dreams of starting his own guild, an expatriate fleeing her country’s religious rule, a soldier who sees the truth in things, and a paranoid bard turned spy. Together, Kyla hopes they can save the planet, but she doesn’t know whether she should, because saving the cultures on Hustis could start an intergalactic war or lead to the enslavement of every civilization in existence.
