After the events depicted in LEVEL SIX, the Kians believe they can now live in peace without the interference of the Coalition of Planets.
The Coalition does not agree and ships are dispatched. CSS Marco Polo, searching for the comet Yanivina, encounters a violent new species and, in an attempt to elude certain destruction, leads a new and dangerous predator to Kiana.
Meanwhile, Kiana's oceans hide unimagined revelations that can change everything - but for good or bad?
Come with us as we RETURN TO KIANA!
