Master Kourt Crowe has nothing but love in his heart for Journeyman Kato Giavanni. The differences that should keep them apart have served only to draw them closer. But now pressures within the Fellowship have become a danger not just to them, but to the future of the Fellowship. Worse, Master Crowe is comes to fear there may be nothing in Journeyman Giavanni that can be called true emotion, much less love.
In search of answers for himself and his Fellowship, Master Crowe turns to revered traditions. Yet, the secrets he needs access to have been all but destroyed. He must put his trust in Kato Giavanni and accept his lover's needs despite the possibility that they may be violating the very traditions they seek to restore. And their relationship may turn them into Renegade Servitors, exactly what they have sworn to destroy.
