From back cover: Humans had long shared the planet Ver-daak with the Ni-lach people--until, in fear of the unusual Ni-lach powers, they turned on the natives. The Ni-lach who survived the massacres went into hiding. Decades passed.
Pursued by bounty hunters, Dhalvad, the Ni-lach and Poco, the half-breed fled into the wilds. Though Poco didn't know it, she had a special Ni-lach talent, similiar to Dhal's abilities to Heal and to transport himself through space and time. But somehow she had to learn to use her gift--for the fate of all the Ni-lach people hung in the balance.
