Human beings are assholes. Dalí Tamareia should know and doesn’t have enough fucks left to give about changing that.

After losing everything—a young family and a promising career as an Ambassador in the Sol Fed Diplomatic Corps—the genderfluid changeling spirals into self-destruction. Though their skills are desperately needed to broker a protective alliance, Dalí no longer cares. They seek oblivion at the bottom of a bottle, in the arms of a faceless lover, or at the end of a knife.

But when Dalí stumbles into a plot threatening changelings like them, a shadow organization called the Penumbra recruits them for a rescue mission full of danger, sex, and intrigue, giving Dalí purpose again.

Risky liaisons with a sexy, charismatic pirate lord could be Dalí’s undoing—and the only way to prevent another deadly act of domestic terrorism like the one that took their family. [Read more…]
