Cassandra Kresnov--a highly advanced hunter-killer android--returns to face down a rogue government's plot to eliminate free will.
Commander Cassandra Kresnov has her hands full. She must lead an assault against the Federation world of Pyeongwha, where a terrible sociological phenomenon has unleashed hell against the civilian population. Then she faces the threat from a portion of League space known as New Torah, in which a ruthless regime of surviving corporations are building new synthetic soldiers but taking the technology in alarming directions.
On the Torahn world of Pantala, Sandy encounters betrayal, crisis, and conspiracy on a scale previously unimaginable. Most challenging of all, she also meets three young street kids who stir emotions in her she didn't think she was capable of. Can the Federation's most lethal killer afford unexpected sentiment? What will be the cost if she is forced to choose between them and her mission, not only to her cause, but to her soul?

It was cold in Anjula, several below freezing, but if he walked fast andkept his woolen hat down over his ears, he found it bearable. There was oldsnow on the curbs, tucked in the places the sweepers missed, or in sidewalkgardens where grass or shrubs tried to grow. All quite odd for a Tanushan,accustomed to that city's tropical location on planet Callay, and temperaturesthat rarely chilled even on winter nights. He was missing the warmth now, asthe prospect of returning to it drew closer. Six months now he'd been withoutit, stuck here on the outer rim of Federation space, in this sprawling port citybuilt foolishly too far south of the equator.
