With the Galactic Union Army stretched thin, mercenary units have arisen for those who have the need--and the means--to hire them... Kay, the alien Vastalimi on the Cutter Force Initiative, has returned to her brutal home world on a mission of mercy. On Vast she was a great healer. Now her hundreds of Vastalimi--including her kin--are dying mysteriously. But is the plague a work of nature? Or is it a bioengineered virus, purposefully unleashed?
