When Micah's incarceration brings him face to face with the head of the Union itself, he discovers a devastating weakness in the Union's stranglehold on the star system...and a shocking truth about his people.
Now a fugitive from the Union she so loyally served, Treska is forced into uneasy alliance with the Restoration. As the lies holding the Union together at the top begin to unravel, so do the thin threads maintaining Treska’s false identity.
With her world shattered and her identity in crisis, Treska’s only ally is the man whose mental powers terrify her. It’s going to take all of Micah’s mental talents to set her free, but her fear of his gifts may make Treska a prisoner of her own mind.

He’s her captive…and her best chance to discover the truth.
Micah’s mission to strike at the Union takes on dangerous complications when his suspicions about Treska’s mysterious past are confirmed. Treska's secret could hold the key to breaking the Union’s uncanny stranglehold on the star system...but at the cost of her mind.
The Union gave Treska an identity and purpose she could believe in, but outside of its influence, she’s forced to question not only the official policies, but her own beliefs about psypaths, especially Micah. Rather than laying her doubts to rest, the arrival of a Union battle cruiser pulls Treska into a web of deceit with her identity at its center.
The line between allies and enemies blurs when you can't even trust your own mind.

On the run from space pirates and planetary insurgents, she must rely on Micah to help them both survive when they learn the bounty on her captive’s head is nothing compared to the bounty on her own.
But the moon’s peculiar atmosphere wreaks havoc on Micah’s mental talents, mixing memories of his lost lover with his current captor. Blurring the lines between his mission and his affection might make it impossible for Micah to protect his enemy from his allies.
