Αποφασισμένη να ζήσει ανεξάρτητη, η Βικτόρια Βάις φεύγει από το ασφαλές καταφύγιο του Νέου Βερολίνου στον πλανήτη Άρη, έχοντας αποδεχτεί να κάνει πρακτική άσκηση στον πιο απομακρυσμένο διαστημικό σταθμό του ηλιακού συστήματος. Το να είσαι κόρη του πρεσβευτή της Μεγάλης Γερμανίας δεν είναι εύκολη υπόθεση και η Τόρι χρειάζεται να κάνει μια νέα αρχή μακριά από τους υπερπροστατευτικούς γονείς της. Όμως, δεν είναι εύκολο να ξεφύγεις από το παρελθόν σου, όταν αποκρύπτεις τα πιο σκοτεινά σημεία. Η Τόρι έπαψε να εμπιστεύεται τους άντρες από τότε που είχε μια σεξουαλική γνωριμία που άφησε σημάδια στην ψυχή της, και έτσι όταν ο Υπεύθυνος Ασφαλείας του σταθμού δείχνει να ενδιαφέρεται γι' αυτήν, νιώθει διχασμένη και δεν ξέρει αν πρέπει να ξεφύγει από αυτόν ή να αφεθεί σε νέες εμπειρίες.

When Sygarius learns that she is no longer a virgin, Nimia flees for her life. But can she find Clovis before the wrath of Sygarius--and imminent death--finds her first?

She's in love with Clovis, though, and he says he loves her, too... But there's a coldness in his eyes that makes her wonder if he really does--or if he's just using her prophetic gift for his own gain.King Sygarius, meanwhile, wants Nimia back. When he captures her and sexually enslaves her again, she discovers a crystal chalice inscribed with a design that echoes those tattooed on her body. And when Clovis rescues her from Sygarius, she steals the chalice to take with her.A Christian priest suspects it's the Holy Grail, but Nimia has a strong feeling it's a remnant of her lost tribe, the Phanne. But even the chalice cannot tell her if the child she carries belongs to Clovis... or to his greatest enemy: Sygarius.
