With those bitter words, Melenta Cha'atre is viciously thrust into the world all alone. Her dream of leaving Lekton to live on the Terran world, Luna, and to attend the Institute seems utterly lost. As long as she could remember, she'd wished to study law and learn how to reform the Law of Tradition, their corrupt system of government. Under the Law, fathers make all decisions for their families. Abuse of power, cruelty, and injustice abounds because world leaders resist change, and fathers feel invincible. Her world is in dire need and Melenta will find a way to change it—she must! If her plan fails, legend says that a champion called The MenD'lee will one day be chosen from her people to lead Lekton to a new era of prosperity and enlightenment. Melenta longs to be that champion. But a tenacious and understanding stranger might ease past her walls of pain and heal her. But will The MenD'lee cooperate and grow up in time to save her world?
