Nayla has a rare Talent: biokinesis, the ability to manipulate life at the cellular level. Healing people is her calling, and she's never been happier than she is working with Doc, her mentor and the pirates' chief physician.
But now a call for aid has come from the most unlikely source: the home planet of the Talented called Killers, those who take life with a thought. Nayla's gift is the only chance to save a young man's life, so reluctantly, Doc agrees that she must go.
To serve her patient, Nayla will travel to the most dangerous place in the pirate colonies. She will face assassins, and challenge her Talent in ways she never expected. But most dangerous of all, she will confront her own past.
Because once, she used her Talent to take life instead of save it.

this was a great addition to the world of the Telepathic Space Pirates. This novella takes place chronologically after book 2 in the Telepathic Space Pirates series and I would recommend to read it in that order as else you might be a bit lost. This story follows Nayla's story, who is a side character in the main series. I really like Nayla as a character and it was great to follow her story. She develops quite a bit in this story and I liked seeing her take on this challenge on her own of visiting the killer home world. It also was interesting to learn more about the killers and the killer home world. There also is an interesting plot point and possible development that was interesting. The romance plot line is set-up here, but doesn't bloom into a full romance yet, I hope that will happen in the next novella. I liked seeing her interact with the guys. There is a potential love interest who was quite interesting and Haggerty who mostly takes the friend/ bodyguard role. I also really liked seeing how Doc and Nayla interact, it's awesome! He's such a great parental figure for Nayla. All in all I had a lot of fun with this story and was sad when it ended as I wanted more, luckily there will be another novella that continues her story and I can't wait to read it!
Wonderful story! Nayla is asked to come to a planet where Killers live, to examine someone who is mysteriously in a coma!
