"HARD CRASH: Zofia and Gerick are prisoners headed for death by torture when their spaceship loses control and slams into the alien planet of Na Pali. Freed in the crash, they find that Na Pali has been occupied by the Skaarj, a race of fierce planetary conquerors who hunt intelligent life for sport and think of humans as nothing more than a tasty meal.
The enslaved Na Pali natives believe that one of the humans might be the avenging angel prophesized centuries ago, the wounded god who will overthrow the Skaarj and lead to freedom. Zofia and Gerick would much rather just find a working starship and leave the aliens to their own struggle, but they are caught up in forces beyond their control. Or are they? Somewhere along the way, they learn the true nature of power...and then the trouble really begins."
