When escaped prisoner Redallek Castonar goes on the run in the war-torn city of Tetranal, he finds himself in the pleasure-house of Councillor Jarrod Tetran. Unaware that Redallek has made a blood-promise with the rebel factions to kill him, Jarrod is instantly attracted to the man. Although Redallek is determined to complete his mission as soon as possible in order to gain his freedom, he quickly finds his new master is not quite the man he expected.
Meanwhile, Jarrod is planning to take the ruling Council captive, and to begin a negotiated peace with the rebel army. Both Redallek and Jarrod are determined to fight for freedom and peace, but in two very different ways.
