The harsh world of Maya is run by the Changed: a carefully inbred aristocracy clustered in their hillside city, high above the swarms of human colonists. For generations now the Changed have been altering their own genes and their children's. They're smarter, faster, longer-lived -- and acutely aware of their superiority. What they don't admit is that they've become a separate species.
The humans of Maya are unaware of the greater political forces at work in their galaxy. Even among the changed, few consider worlds outside of theirs. So when Della, a rebellious young changed woman, meets Arsen, a charismatic human rights rebel, their brief union will have an effect on the galactic empire that they never imagine...
