BenBella, Apr 2004, 14.95
The Teleod and the Metaji are at war each blaming the other for destroying the fabric of space-time that make such travel possible. Kyllikki, a high-ranking telepath from an elite Teleod family, has become an outlaw amongst her people as she has deserted them to join the Metaji Empire in an effort to stop the war from destroying the galaxy
As her vessel is destroyed the renegade telepath teams up with Zuchmul the Luren (intergalactic vampires) and Idom the Guide (astrogator). Together the trio rescues earthling Elias the Dreamer, who was illegally abducted and unlawfully bonded to Kyllikki's cousin, Zimor head of the Teleod. As they learn more about what is happening to the space-time fabric, the quartet concludes that they must destroy Zimor, but they don't even have a decent space ship and each question whether they can trust any of the other three allies.
