Summary (From the publisher):

In the distant future, mankind has discovered a race of sentients made up entirely of plasma and energy. So far apart in physiology, they necessarily do not recognize one another as sentient beings, and so it remained until the first human telepaths made contact with the telepathic race of energy beings. In pairs, the two races interact, the bonds between telepath and energy being deeper than friendship, trust, or even love.

Now, an exploratory ship examining the remains of a recent supernova has run into difficulty, and a human/energy being telepath pair are their only hope for survival. The limits of the bond between the two will be tested, and the final outcome is as uncertain as survival in the cold depths between stars -- or the roiling nuclear furnace within them.
