Book Review


The humans find that not only are the Charneki on the planet, but also the Tikshi, another alien race that has been at war with the Charneki since the beginning of time. Zeneba refuses the Tikshi's help, which causes the Tikshi to team up with the humans to destroy the Charneki (something Hugh and Elena don't support). Battling with their feelings about what is right and wrong, Hugh and Elena are sent on the expedition to the Tikshi leader. During this time, Rhys is getting to know Zeneba more, and working out ways to come to a peaceful end instead of going to war. Rhys shows the worth that the humans have to help the Charneki if they would stop fighting. But while trying to prove that not all humans are evil, more humans show up in space ships, making it more dangerous for Zeneba and her people.
