The women of Isis refuse to wait idly for slaughter. Led by Tomyris Whitaker and her chief of staff -- and former lover -- Loy Chen, they are attempting to launch a mission to replace the deteriorating satellites that protect the Border. But General Medusa is convinced that a civilian task force cannot succeed in this critical mission and challenges their control. As Whitaker and Medusa play politics, sparks fly between the rival women they have each chosen to pilot the shuttle, Loy Chin and Major Mika Reno. But the crumbling Border satellites cannot wait for the orderly process of the Council, nor the disorderly love affairs as the women cling to what may be their last taste of freedom.
As love and duty become one, the lesbians of Isis risk their lives in a battle of wits and courage that will determine whether women will live free or die enslaved.
