Octavo, pictorial boards. First edition. Novel about conflict between humans and the S'sinn, an alien bat-like species, who have colonized the same planet. Human and S'sinn empaths (who fear and hate each other's species) act as translators between the two races, and a pair of them team up to prevent a new, potentially more destructive, galactic war. A fine copy in fine dust jacket. (#146337). N° de réf. du libraire 146337
Synopsis : On the home world of the bat-like S'sinn, a last-ditch effort is underway to prevent a new war between humanity and the S'sinn that would destroy the multi-race Commonwealth. Jarrikk, a S'sinn, and Kathryn, a human, are both empaths, able to sense others' feelings, and use those skills as Translators. They fear and hate the others' species, but have sworn an oath, so they Link, exchanging memories and emotions. They hit on a dangerous plan to fake Translation. They prevent immediate war, but destroy their abilities in the process. Jarrikk no longer has reason to live, and sets out to perform the suicide he was turned away from years before. Kathryn fails to prevent his attempt, but manages to save his life - and in the process creates a one-of-a-kind bond with him even stronger than that created by the symbiote. They risk everything to stop their own races from engulfing the galaxy in war - and perhaps save each other in the process.
