After Lady Sarina Octavion fell captive to the Sorracchi Sovereign Empire and imprisoned on Levantin, a decaying space station and prison, The Revolutionist Freedom Fighters attempt to rescue her. Every attempt failed, as her captor Tandeth Joquit revels in his torture of her. She is a symbol to the Revolution and crushing her crushes their resolve more each day.
Left desperate to rescue her, Lord Saron Octavion asks mercenary and ship for hire captain Tanner Kess to rescue her, a job Tanner would never refuse because he owes the House of Octavion more than they even know.
Tanner almost gives up hope in getting her out when he can't locate her amongst the other Uudon-dosed prisoners. When he finally finds her, he is thankful he always prepares for the worst, because her situation is the stuff of nightmares.
Add to that the fact that the Rebellion picks this time to attack the station. Not only does he have guards and Sarina herself to deal with, but gunfire and an aging station ready to shudder apart with the next pulse cannon blast. He has to earn Serina's trust – something that doesn't come easy in the Sorracchi Sovereign Empire – if he has any hope of getting her out alive. By the time all is said and done, they both come out different people… and for the better.
