Twenty years after they destroyed the Imperial fleet, Micha and Lessa are faced with the results of that action. They are forced to flee Nova to protect their families from humanity, but can humanity be protected from the grown children of Nova?
If the Novans thought their victory in the Galactic War would allow them a lifetime of peace, they were wrong. Enemies are popping up everywhere, suspicions abound, and they are left with nowhere to go.
When the Novan Witches blew apart a sun they created a gap in space-time-reality. That gap is growing and now they have nowhere else to go.
Can they survive in the Gap?
