Description: Alan Dean Foster doesn't just build worlds, he creates entire universes. Book by book, his star-spanning saga of the Humanx Commonwealth has evolved into one of science fiction's most notable achievements. Filled with rigorously imagined aliens and sophisticated cultures, spiced with humor and passion, and driven by relentless adventure and intrigue, Foster's remarkable Commonwealth series just keeps getting better.

Now, in order to survive, the three unlikely allies must do something that no one has ever done before: walk out of the Viisiiviisii.Meanwhile, in what passes for civilization, long-simmering tensions between Sakuntala and Deyzara erupt into violence, threatening Matthias's official position of neutrality--and her life. Behind the violence, Matthias detects a
