"J.D. Lakey's story shines with beautiful writing, a creative plotline, and vivid characterizations. It is a joy to read." - S. Harrison, Top 1000 Reviewer and Vine Voice

Life under the dome is simple. Work hard, follow the rules, be safe, do what is expected of you and you will be rewarded. Easy. But the Blackwind Pack has two problems: Tam - the alpha - aspires to greatness, and Cheobawn - his Black Bead Ear - is profoundly gifted, with a psi ability so advanced the elders of the village have yet to understand it. Following their nearly disastrous first foray together outside the dome, the newly-formed Blackwind pack is just getting used to their new lives together, and their bonds continue to strengthen. But Cheobawn can feel something ominous about to happen, something that will put her entire village and everyone she loves in mortal danger. A creature has climbed the Escarpment and now wanders in the southern forests. She knows she must find it before the elders get wind of its presence and go hunting it with deadly intent. But her pack would never let her go alone. Together, they set out on a dangerous race toward an unknown enemy, hoping Cheobawn can find a way to save not only their way of life, but their very existence on the lush, savage planet they call home. The epic adventure that began with "Black Bead" continues in Bhotta's Tears. Journey along as Cheobawn unravels the mysteries embedded in the deceptively bucolic life of her village under the dome.
