Juilan Pranss is just a lowly government employee on a space-faring planet. Or is she? After she is spirited from a besieged spaceliner and taken to a distant planet, Juilan suddenly isn't sure. Her handsome rescuer, Joddrie Ferstan has grandiose plans, but his ambition seems dangerous.

Ferstan has taken her to a planet that is being colonized by her known world, yet where the native humans, Ceitwans, have existed for more than a millennium in relative harmony with ferocious sentient Xirophans. The alien colonists have no regard for the native people, nor for the planet’s many exotic life forms--from parasitic sayzen to gigantic zupho--that are vital to the environmental balance.

This balance is maintained by the Holder--a person of extraordinary sensory and mentalist abilities. Genetically-imprinted knowledge is a cultural asset, especially for the Holder. But for thirty years, Ceitwans have had no Holder. Civil war is eminent as each Ceitwan faction insists on a different way to deal with the alien colonists and with the vacant Holder position.

Trenner Curembac, a moody, driven outcast, helps Juilan escape Ferstan. Trenner believes Juilan is the Holder heir. He takes her to a sanctuary and tutors her in genetic recall and psychophysical abilities. Juilan must overcome her cultural ignorance and personal fears, and a trek into the planet’s dangerous uncharted region. But can she prevail against her psychotic brother Mylo? Mylo needs her so he can become Holder through a ceremony that could cause Juilan’s death.
