When she discovers that the Shifters are evolving, Kira knows she can finally save some of them from extinction by giving them a new home on the secret planet of Kierna'Rhoan. Officer David Cario enters Kira's world in the hopes of discovering proof of illegal activity by her ex-husband, the commander of a Shifter Extermination squadron.
