A thrilling sci-fi novel of communication and learned trust between human and alienKathryn was a human empath whose world and life had been destroyed when, as a young child, she watched helplessly as the alien S’sinn slaughtered her parents before her very eyes. Only the Translators, an elite guild of empaths, were able to free her from the trauma and give her a new life.Jarrikk was a young S’sinn, an unproven warrior who saw his flight mates slaughtered by the humans who sought to colonize his world. Crippled so that he could never fly again, he would have chosen death, but he wasn’t allowed a choice. Instead, he too was trained to be a Translator.As humans and S’sinn find themselves poised on the brink of a war that could not only destroy their own species, but also disrupt the delicate balance of the multiracial Commonwealth, these two Translators—who have every reason to hate one another—must work together to find a common ground and avert catastrophe. But whether their Translators’ oath and training can overcome the enemies leagued against them remains to be seen.
