"Simply Spectacular..." -Desert News
To save Aeryn from a near-fatal injury, Crichton and Chiana must infiltrate a secret Peacekeeper Gamak Base. Though they find an ally on the site, Crichton meets an adversary far more dangerous, more ruthlessly cruel than Crais could ever be - Scorpius, a terrifying Scarren - Sebacean hybrid.
And when Scorpius discovers Crichton holds powerful information, he uses the tortuous Aurora Chair to rip the memories from his mind!
The Hidden Memory
As the crew plans to rescue Crichton, Moya suddenly goes into labor. So while Chiana and Rygel remain aboard to deal with the delivery, Aeryn, Zhaan and D'Argo wage an assault on the base. Unfortunately, Crichton's rescuers aren't the only visitors to the fortress. Crais has arrived as well! But is the greater danger the double-threat of Crais and Scorpius, or is it Moya's strange and terrifying progeny being born miles above?
