Kidnapped and altered by a brutal race—the Tlok'mk—Lianndra is forced to fight in their alien war. But from the darkness steps the Gryphon, mighty warriors with gentle hearts, who want nothing more than the war to end. A race ensues for justice and peace against a ruthless foe that will do anything to achieve their ultimate goal—total universe domination. At a time when all hope seems lost, and the enemy is more powerful than those who fight against it, is freedom possible? Will all who oppose the Tlok'mk perish? As the Tlok'mk grow stronger, it seems only a matter of time before both freedom and universal peace become a distant memory. Then Lianndra discovers a secret: freedom comes from within.
