The heroine: Ryanna – she volunteered to travel the Zoraht Empire to escape from an abusive ex who was determined to kill her. He was a sheriff and she thought the only way she could truly escape him was to leave the galaxy. She says she doesn’t want anything to do with men, but is falling for Thrax and Zorux despite them not being her fated mate.
The Heroes: Thrax and Zorux – Zorux is a highborn of Zoraht according to his markings, but they are a lie. His lowborn father killed the man he worked for and took his place. While dying his father confessed his crime to his wife who then killed her daughter and tried to kill Zorux before taking her own life. Zorux was scarred in that episode, he is now afraid of being exposed because the entire family of the person who poses as a highborn would be punished with death if it comes out and he fears for his siblings. Thrax was alone his entire life until he was exiled to the prison planet.
The Story: After the rainy season ends, the group decides to go in two different directions on separate missions. One group is going to try to find the rest of the females from their ship whom they think ended up with another group of Draekons. The other group is going on a mission to search for the ship parts that were dropped onto the planet for Barax, who purposely crashed the ship the women were on. Barax is now in exile high on the mountain as punishment for his crimes.
Thrax, Zorux and Ryanna are together in the group that go after the high tech cloak ship parts. However, not everyone actually wants to get off of the prison planet. The Draekon males can’t really go home, because they would just be caught and returned to the prison planet. Though most still want to leave the prison planet and go to someplace else where they can live in exile rather than be forced to stay on a prison world.
The story is told in multiple points of view by dual narrators Misty Dawn & Ry Forest. The narration was dual narration with the male doing all the voices within the chapters that are told from the male points of view and the female doing the chapters told from the female point of view.
