Ten years ago, the Alnese reached an agreement with their Ven immigrants to unite their peoples and save the peace. Now Ven attacks target the key to that agreement, alliances between Ven and Alnese families. Daughter of prominent Pallas House Goal barely survives fighting off four assassins, but saves her Ven husband and son. Alnos-born Djazin Sotoros is faced with new dangers just as she readies herself to join the family of her Alnese lover. Will both women have to sacrifice their happiness to protect their children and avert a new civil war?
