VOLUME FIVE OF THE SOJOURNERS CYCLE
The Church of the Regents is dead, its followers arrested by the Society of Travelers or gone to the winds. Laila Johar flees the wreckage left behind, accompanied by the body that was once hers, what remains of Ana Arajuano, who she failed to protect, and a woman, Suon, whose love she cannot return.
Laila has regained control of her mind, or so she tries to convince herself. But if that were really true, why does she have dreams that are far too real? Of people in other universes, the meaning of which she cannot begin to understand?
There is no escaping the Church, or her own past, though. The Seeker returns, demanding she make good on their agreement, and discover, once and for all, the mole the Society of Travelers placed at the heart of the Church. But that discovery pales in comparison to what she soon learns. For Laila has an unwanted part to play in a neverending struggle over who will rule the crossings between the universes and all that lie between them.
In the stunning conclusion to the Sojourners Cycle Laila will be faced with a terrible choice, one that will decide her fate and humanity’s.
