Jonas has just returned home to the Border Planet Celestia after two years' military service with the Border Patrol.
He has a wife, a family...and he also carries with him knowledge of a secret war. A war of extermination against an alien race, a war of ultimate destruction.
Now Jonas, a simple farmer on an outpost world, is at the center of a battle against his own race. A battle that may well cost him everything - even his own humanity.
