Abstract:

The mri race, indestructible until having finally met their match in a war against a new and powerful enemy, are in danger of extinction, leaving three individuals--a warrior, priestess, and human being--to recapture their domination.

For the first time in one volume--the complete trilogy comprised of the novels "Kesrith, Shon'jir, " and "Kutath." A race of golden-skinned, golden eyed creatures is nearly annihilated in a war with "human" fighters. It's up to three individuals to save the race from extinction. Can they retrace the galaxy-wide path of this nomadic race through millennia to reclaim the ancient world that gave them life?
