Synopsis ~

Tamisan, daughter of a space-traveller and a woman of Ty-Kry, is unique among dreamers - a dreamer who is fully aware of the waking world, and aware that she is virtually a slave, who must conceal her differences if she is ever to have a chance to be free. After being sold to Lord Starrex, whose adventurous life has been curtailed by a crippling injury, Tamisan begins to experiment with creating dream scenarios in which history took a different path, and finds unexpected results.
