Ever since the fall of the Thallonian Empire, Si Cwan has been searching for his younger sister, the only other survivor of the royal family. His quest has been a hard one, filled with many disappointments, but now it may be nearing its end . . .

On the planet Montos, a mysterious young woman, whose past is shrouded in secrecy, finds herself pursued by both the fanatical Redeemers and a vicious race of feral predators known only as the Dogs of War. All are in search of information regarding the true nature and location of the Quiet Place, a mystical realm celebrated in myth and legend. Only this same woman, now called Riella, may hold the secret of the Quiet Place, a secret that the Redeemers and others will kill to possess.

Is Riella indeed Si Cwan’s long-lost sister? Before he can learn the truth, he and his crewmates must brave the unchecked savagery of the Dogs of War—and enter the terrifying heart of the Quiet Place.

The Dogs of War were already firing on the village. Si Cwan clambered up the side of one of the old-model fighters and eased himself into the cockpit. “Kebron, this is going to be a tight fit for you,” he warned.

“I’ll take a deep breath,” said Kebron, looking around for a fighter that was to his liking.

“Soleta, have you any experience with flying vessels of this sort?”

“No,” she said cooly.

“Have you ever been in a solo firefight of any sort?”


That was not what Si Cwan was hoping to hear. They were going to be outnumbered as it was. His main hope wsa that the Dogs would tuck and run, as they tended to do simply to protect their numbers whenever a battle seemed more trouble than it was worth.

“Perhaps it would be better if you remained here, then.”

“That would be the logical course of action,” Soleta agreed. Whereupon she selected a fighter and vaulted into the cockpit . . .
