Series: Tales of Telzey Amberdon
Beneath the peaceful star-blaze of Orado's night sky, Telzey's mind suddenly meshed with another -- just in time to experience his hideous death under the claws of a psi controlled monster.
For Telzey Amberdon, there was no choice. She had to discover the identity of the murderer. And so she made her first move, and unknowingly became a player in the Lion Game. Before long, she discovered that the stakes she was wagering were the freedom of the Galaxy -- and her own life. An ordinary person wouldn't stand a chance -- but Telzey was no ordinary person, and the Lion People might have more than a little trouble, faced with the most powerful human psi ever to exist.
