The war with the NiLTs is over, but the damage done to Nat-Sat, and the resulting death cloud is slowly strangling the life out of the planet. Only two groups of people remain, the Boowanskyvia and the remaining Nat-Sats residing in and around Nggraa.
Rick Allen, the Chosen One, has left the Dina Galaxy and returned to Earth to heal from the loss of his love, Tavia, killed on Nat-Sat. After a year, the Travelers complicate his life by flashing a young child from Swartz into his bedroom. They had saved her from being a living sacrifice to the Harvest God, but he must decide what to do with her.
He returns to the Dina Galaxy with the child but what he finds is not what he expected. There are problems and conflict everywhere. His task as the Chosen One has become even more complex as he flashes back and forth from Earth to the Dina Galaxy.
The Sun Master Coe's team (asleep for over 400 years) is not awaking as planned. The Great One refuses to leave Nat-Sat even though her people are dying from the dust and pollution on the planet. A major earthquake destroys the Kut-All's world and the whole population must be resettled. On Earth, mercenaries are determined to get Rick's laser weapon by threatening Drs. Larry and Jenny Webco again.
And on top of all that, Clip, Hawk, and Earl are determined to persuade Rick to import cows from Earth. With all his problems, now he must find a way to bring cows to the Dina Galaxy.
