The first book in the Web Shifter’s Library series returns to the adventures of Esen, a shapeshifting alien and member of an ancient yet endangered race, who must navigate the perils of a hostile universe.
Esen’s back! And the dear little blob is in trouble, again.
Things began so well. She and her Human friend Paul Ragem are about to celebrate the first anniversary of their greatest accomplishment, the All Species’ Library of Linguistics and Culture. Clients from across known space have been invited.
But first to arrive are unexpected guests, starting with Paul’s family, who’d mourned his supposed death years ago. Understandably, feelings are bent. But what matters? Paul’s father has gone missing.
Before he can convince Esen to help him search, a friend shows up to use the Library. A crisis on Dokeci Na is about to explode into violence. To have a hope of stopping it, Evan Gooseberry needs answers. Unfortunately, the artifact he brought in trade holds its own distracting secret. A touch of very familiar blue. Web-flesh.
The race is on. Paul, to find his father. Esen, to search for a mysterious legacy while helping Evan avert a war. What none of them realize is the price of success will be the most terrible choice of all.
