The civil war among the alien Atevi has ended and Tabini-aiji, the ruler of the Western Association, has returned to power. Bren Cameron, Tabini’s human paidhi, decides to return to his recovered home on the coast, but when Tabini’s son Cajeiri, desperate for adventure, flees his responsibilities to join Bren, Tabini sends the boy’s great-grandmother to find him.
Even though the war is over, the opposition is still present, and a district once thought to be safe could now be a trap. With Bren, Cajeiri, and his great-grandmother under one roof…a trap is baited.
