H’char’n, a downed kzin hero, crashes on Earth during a Kamikaze-like attack and flees across the U.S., through the Appalachians, toward Niagara Falls. Pursued by an angry DHS agent who wants to kill this representative of a murderous species, and accompanied by a sensitive young woman who realizes the kzin have some redeeming qualities, it’s a race against time as the noose tightens. Meanwhile, the duplicitous and greedy kzin Silver (last seen in the Man-Kzin series novel Treasure Planet) is hustling to sell a nanotechnological “fountain of youth” to gullible humans. If H’char’n cannot escape and deal with Silver as only a Kzin hero is able, it may mean a terrible escalation of the conflict between the kzin and humans that has already cost both proud species far too much.
A stand-alone novel by Man-Kzin anthology stalwarts Hal Colebatch and Jessica Q. Fox set in the hugely popular Man-Kzin War series created by multiple New York Times best-selling author Larry Niven.
