"The planet Korwar was a glittering jewel of a world, home to the galaxy's wealthiest, but the jewel had a flaw: the huge slum called the Dipple, where the misfits, the penniless, the hopeless eked out a wretched existence - a fate which two young men hoped to escape." "Troy Horan leaped at the chance to work in an unusual pet shop in an upscale neighborhood, offering exotic creatures from other worlds to the wealthy. He thought his luck had changed. But the shop owner was playing a dangerous game of intrigue, and when his employer was murdered Troy had no choice but to hide in the mysterious ruins left by a vanished alien race; ruins which trained explorers had entered, never to return.". "Nik Kolherne had a face so hideously scarred that he wore a mask to cover it. Then he was recruited by a mysterious figure who offered Nik a new face - if, in return Nik would make a young heir think he was someone else. He accepted the offer reluctantly, but soon realized that he was now an essential element in a kidnapping plot. Now he was the only hope of the young heir's survival - if they could survive on a planet veiled in eternal night and swarming with deadly predators."--BOOK JACKET.
