(From the publisher):
Elana, newly graduated from the Federation Anthropological Service Academy, is sent immediately into danger on the planet Toris- a Youngling world poised on the brink of nuclear war. This assignment is far more challenging than anything she has ever done. She is ordered to merely observe, and must not reveal her alien origin or interfere with the planet's natural course of evolution. But how can she stand by and watch as an entire world drives itself to nuclear annihilation?
Fellow agent Randil should never have been sent on this mission. He has not been properly trained for work in the field, and his compassion for the Torisians may lead him to intervene. Yet his very actions may bring about the holocaust that he is so desperately trying to prevent.
The fate of Toris rests in Elana's hands, as she must choose between siding with a renegade agent or stopping him at any cost.
A companion novel to Enchantress from the Stars.
