Why - of all the species on Varone - why did she pick Human as her second form? Now, thrown a thousand years into the future, Keata Windhunter faces more than a personal crisis. Her is species extinct, and the humans she sees around her now are a vague shadow of who they should be. Time is fractured, with new timelines intersecting and diverging at random intervals. Reality shifts and only she can tell. Instinct tells Keata she can fix it but she's never been more than a lab assistant. Three things may help - interactive glyphs embedded in her skin, scribblings from a crazy woman, and her own fragmented memories. Repairing time would bring back her species, heal the planet, and return the spark that makes humans more than a curious breed of stupid. The trouble is, someone wants her to fail. Keata suspects she knows who, but a thousand years in the future, is that even possible? Her only solution will take some creative thinking and team work but if they succeed, will anyone be ready for the outcome?
