Her Grandfather is a mass murderer; her father is a convicted killer; and she's a clone terrorist, at least that's what they say. She's illegally bouncing in and out of JumpSpace, with the parasitic spawn of three JumpSpace Entities inside her and she doesn't even know what or who she is anymore. Now someone expects her to do their dirty work and won't take no for an answer.
The parasites and their parents, the JumpSpace Entities, are the cause of half her problems and she'd love to get rid of them; except that there's a fine line between them and what makes her what she is. They're the ones who wrote her father’s memories into her mind and she has no recollection of her own life; so she's afraid that removing them will leave her once again in the darkness of a mindless coma.
Her father's memory, his knowledge, has helped her survive, but her connection with that entire family is what has brought the rest of her trouble. It could be fate that landed her at Medical Space Station Perl, but the key to knowing that is one of the things missing from her father's memory. What's worse is that the people claiming to have created her, the Clone Colony Collective; Special Service; the Greater Terran Galactic Properties, have an agenda associated with her creation that's closely tied to the JumpSpace Entities.
Forced into a scheme that seems unclear to her, by agencies who are working at cross purposes, it's tempting to let the tide of chaos dictate her actions. Instead she strikes back with the tools she has around her and the help of friends she's made aboard the station. Her enemies raise the stakes and heighten the consequences when they fear she's about to gain control of her own destiny.
Worse yet; Travis is faced with a new puzzle as she tries to prove that along with being sentient and sapient, she has a soul and should be free. She has to decide if she should stop there and turn her back on the others who are are sentient and sapient beings and are being treated as property.
