A choice between love and freedom.
As Tracy searches for leads in a Syndicate space station, she stumbles upon Adeline, a slave in hiding with no means to fully escape. Adeline’s daughter has evaded slavery, but one glimpse of her marked face by a Syndicate informant will sentence her to death. Unable to contact Vigard, Tracy must choose between abandoning them or placing Vigard and his passengers in danger. Worse yet, the risks are much higher for attempting to free two slaves than one. How much can Tracy pull off?
