This Gulf of Time and Stars; Reunification #1
Czerneda, Julie E.
First novel of the new science fiction trilogy by Aurora Award-winning Julie E. Czerneda, author of the Clan Chronicles.
To save their alien world, the Omâ€™ray left home, renamed themselves the Clan, and settled among humanity, hiding in plain sight. But they are no longer hidden. The Clanâ€™s reproduction is tied to individual power and their latest generation of females, Choosers, are too strong to safely mate. Sira di Sarc, their leader joins with a human starship captain for answers. But as Siraâ€™s people are dying all around her, and with war about to consume the Trade pact, Sira will be left with only one choice. She must find the way back. And take the Clan home.
