Synopsis: Return to the world of the truth-discerning Seekers and their catlike companions, the Ghatti, in the thrilling second installment in The Ghatti's Tale series

But Doyce's Bondmate, the catlike ghatta called Khar, has a much more personal mission to fulfill, to break through the mind barriers which Doyce created as protection against a terrifying attack by Vesey. For although Vesey was defeated by Doyce and the united minds of eight ghatti, Doyce has remained in shock for months, trapped within her own mind's protective barriers.
But now the Seekers Veritas have need of her services once again, and, recovered or not, she and Khar must join a mission to the neighboring realm of Marchmont. For someone seems bent on creating dissension between Canderis and Marchmont. And even the truth-reading skills of the Seekers may not be enough to unravel the twisted threads of a conspiracy that could see Canderis and its neighbor hopelessly caught in a devastating war...
