THE MOON OF THREE RINGS- It was the time of the Moon of the Three Rings when the Free Trader ship Lydis landed on the world of Yiktor, a planet the Combine was seeking to control for the power the Three Rings would bring them. The life of a Free Trader was all junior crew member Krip Vorlund knew, but when he visited a beast show on Yiktor he was strangely attracted to the owner of the show animals, a delicate and mysterious woman named Maelen. Soon Vorlund was caught up in a vicious struggle by powerful opponents of the fate of a planet-and learned the nature of Maelen's sorcery when he found his mind trapped in the body of a wolflike creature. Krip would again inhabit a human body-though not his own-and on a second planet he and the crew of the Lydis would be caught in a battle of Ancient powers and nameless evil. Only Maelen the Moon Singer could save them with her superhuman powers-if she didn't bring death and destruction instead. . . . [Publisher's Note: Moonsinger was originally published in parts as Moon of Three Rings and Exiles of the Stars, its sequel. This is the first time the complete saga has been published in one volume.]
