From the publisher:
Seven years after defecting to the Klingon Empire to help prevent interstellar conflict, First consort Keysa sutai-Riskadh finds herself back on a Starfleet ship -- much against her will. Kidnapped by the Federation extremist group Quattuor Anni as a pawn in their own battle plans, the former Alien Contact Specialist must face her toughest negotiation partners yet: the officers and crew of the USS ENTERPRISE. Meanwhile, on the Klingon homeworld, Emperor Karan faces his own ultimate challenge. Is his consort's abduction a call to war and glory -- or a test of diplomatic strategy and trust? This novel-length sequel to Beyond Diplomacy (and its related series) offers high adventure in both Federation and Empire space -- and the return of many of this series' best-loved characters. No familiarity with past takes is required, however. This is a stand-alone novel of professional length, with illustrations by Gennie Summers and cover art by Mark Feeley.
