One of the many charms of planet Lyndir is the Between-World, home to the licensed entertainers of the Sa'adani Empire. The most famous is Kes, a professional dominatrix who has become a celebrity attraction at a palatial house of domination called Tryst. One of Kes's most devoted clients is the crime cartel boss Janus, a major cog in the underworld on Lyndir and elsewhere. When a high-powered imperial authority decides she wants Janus out of the way, the seductive domina Kes is the most logical avenue. She'd never betray a client's trust, but the imperial threat to her and her Between-World sisters is so great that she has no choice but to assist. Imprisoned, altered against her will and turned into a brutal weapon by the highly experimental Splintegrate cloning technology, Kes is at war with herself as everything she holds dear falls apart around her.
