       Additional Information  
      Risa Tigue was the daughter of a successful Norlea businessman, and well on the way to becoming a top-notch businesswoman in her own right--until the day a hurricane turned her world upside-down. Her father died before her eyes, voiding the precious life-energy that every Sime must have. Risa herself survived only by draining her own supply of that life-energy to the limit, consuming it to give her the extra strength essential to get safely to shore. Now she must hunt a Gen, a member of the other half of humanity that provides life-energy. That hunt puts her straight into the arms of an extraordinary individual--a Gen like no other she had known. A Gen who is not drugged livestock or wild barbarian, but a man who speaks her own language and literally invites her into his shelter. A Gen who can give his life-energy and not die, but become stronger and healthier from the giving--and who recognizes her as having the precious sub-mutation that makes his lifestyle possible. If only he can convince her to turn her back on the killer lifestyle she grew up with, he may yet save his imperiled community. And that's just the beginning of an intricate dance of move and counter-move as Risa Tigue and Sergi ambrov Keon come to terms with one another and explore the meaning of freedom in a world where invisible chains bind everyone.
