This companion to Those of My Blood continues the story of the luren, a race of peaceful vampires who share the galaxy with the humans on Earth, as well as many other races. Two new players in the galaxy are introduced - the Teleod and the Metaji - who are in the middle of a horrific galactic war. As the war threatens to demolish the fragile space-time continuum, the future of space travel for all races is endangered. Kyllikki, a Teleod telepath working for the Metaji, is the only one capable of reconciling the different philosophies of the two groups. Few are willing to help her, but she finds allies in Zuchmul, a luren, and Elias, an earthling. Elias possesses a quality that makes him an ideal spy - his ability to dream. To save the governments and space travel Kyllikki must unleash certain powers within Elias. If she succeeds, she will face the fury of both the Teleod and the Metaji. Complicating her task further, Kyllikki struggles with her intense feelings for Elias, a rock star of a different race, with whom she never expected to fall in love.
