The wolf assassin brothers, Natani and Zen, have found themselves in trouble. After one becomes mortally wounded, the other resorts of costly illegal magic to bind their minds together.

Despite a long and winding history of war and aggression, there are those in the world who strive for peace between the two species. These are those stories.
