As murder and discontent plague her people, Protectress Axandra Saugray must unravel the mystery enslaving her family and release her people from a cursed fate.
Driven from Earth to avoid persecution for possessing strong mental abilities, a human civilization lives in relative peace on a distant planet. Axandra Saugray, a young woman reluctant to accept her duties as matriarchal and social leader, finds her destiny immutably woven into a mystery that has haunted the women of her family for centuries. As her mothers did before her, she carries with her an ancient soul.
Inexplicable deaths mar the security of life, and disease plagues the residents of the country. Axandra struggles to balance the needs of her personal life with the needs of thousands amidst increasing turmoil. To compound the problems, a sister planet approaches for its closet pass in 300 years, wracking their world with natural disasters.
As Protectress, Axandra travels the continent to assure everyone that they will be looked after. In the midst of her travels, she favors romance with a historian and archeologist named Quinn, who uncovers a fascinating yet out-of-place artifact that may hold clues to the rapidly spreading chaos.
To release her people from a cursed fate, Axandra must learn how to release herself from enslavement.
