Skeen, space pilot, trader, collector, and theif had come to the world of Mistommerk through a bizarre Gateway in time and space. A gateway which only one of its creators, the mysterious Ykx, could reopen from the Mistommerk side. So Skeen began her search for Ykx, a search that would take her into 8 different domains with 8 different races which dwelt together in an uneasy peace.
Soon Skeen's quest upset the delicate balance of power on Mistommerk, and she and her new found friends, found themselves pursued by bloodthirsty assassins, determined to end their lives before they could unlock the Gate between worlds and escape with Mistommerk's most precious treasure.
Well written and quite enjoyable.
