Summary (From the publisher):

Star Kings are a race of non-humans who characteristically disguise themselves as humans--but humans with a difference. Power alone is their goal--a goal that is sought no matter what the price in ordinary "human life."

Keith Gersen was not a Star King, but he was looking for one--a very special Star King, a Star King who had murdered his parents many years before. All Gersen knew was that the Star King's name was Attel Malagate. Throughout endless galaxies of space, Gersen hunted down his Star King and finally found him. . .
