When an alien ship crashes into the space station and diplomatic post Labyrinthe VII, the precarious balance between Harmony's High Preistess Sissy and Confederated Star System Agent Jake begins to dissolve. Suddenly they are caught in a web of deceit and intrigue as undercover agents for both the humans and the aliens vie for control not only of the space station, but of a new and unclaimed planet that may hold the answers many of them seek-or prove to be a deadly trap.
C.F. Bentley was named for two grandmothers, giving her a living connection to the past. A museum trained historian, she has spent many hours prowling pioneer cemeteries deepening these connections. Raised in a military family, she grew up all over the United States. Her interests and reading range from ancient history, to spiritual meditations, to space stations, and a whole lot in between. Her Signal Corps brother has launched several communications satellites on the Shuttle. Watching those launches got her hooked on the ideal of humans reaching out into the universe.
