The aliens, discovering this have placed him aboard a starship for transport to another world where he is to be studied. Our hero is in a constant struggle for survival and his need to hide the truth behind his origins. He finds another also like himself. These two start exploring their commonalities. He of Terran stock, She of totally alien make-up. While on the run from persuit they come to the conclusion that he is indeed of alien stock. But I can't give it all away. The more interesting bits will have to wait for you to read the book. MWAHAHAHAHA"

|"For 300 years, the alien Tyr had ruled the Earth, imprisoning the true individualists, the geniuses, in dome colonies on poisonous worlds, forcing them to work on projects which the Try hoped would reveal all of humankinds secrets. But Daetrin's secret was one no one had ever uncovered. Taken into custody by the Tyr, he would have to confront the truth about himself at last -- and if he failed, all humans would pay the price.
