Her memories are blocked. Her freedom is gone. Her crime is a mystery. When Ming Dalamani awakens from twenty years of suspended animation, she recalls only fragments of her former life: the life she led before she was arrested by the governing interplanetary corporation, Renasco, for a now unremembered crime. Relocated to an alien world far from the only home she has ever known, Ming serves a powerful Renasco representative to repay her debt. But daily she lives with deadly threats from two men-the hideous mutant Zardir Huekk and the handsome, secretive musician Tieg Innig-who both want the same thing: information. Renasco-trained as a calligrapher in three dimensions, Ming begins to remember more: a clan, a mission, and interstellar piracy. Ming must decide where her loyalties lie: with her powerful new employer, with a budding resistance movement... or elsewhere.
