Daius has spent his days searching for a way into the Neptune Colony, as have many other bio-males. After failing the humans once, he’s adamant he can help free the colony. When he follows a rumor about a stolen Hje transport filled with heliotrope, he tracks down the pirates who took it—along with a piece of special cargo the Hje are anxious to retrieve.
Once he unlocks one door, he finds he needs another key.
Izak Abernathy has lived his entire life on Neptune. Trying to rebel got him locked up and left to rot. His future changes when the head of the Hje choses him as a personal servant—which puts him straight in the path of Daius.
Is Izak the key to giving Daius everything he wants?
