With Imperial Troops in hot pursuit, "Lady" Zavaronne,
with her now trusted Dushau friend Jindigar and his friends of many
species, crashes on a colonizable planet which the Dushau have kept secret
from the Empire, against all Laws. She has forgiven Jindigar that lie, but
now she finds he has lied to her again. The planet has intelligent
natives, and is therefore embargoed.
They can't survive here unless she joins Jindigar's Dushau exploration
team in a psychic bond so they can blend into the local ecology.
They must convince the Natives to hide them from the Imperial troops
chasing them. As they take refuge with a Hive Dwelling native, Zavaronne
must peel away the Dushau's lies, half-truths, and hidden agenda so she
can decide if she can trust Jindigar before the Imperial troops find them.
Should she switch sides - again?

A New Romantic
In 1985, the first novel of the Dushau Trilogy won the first
Romantic Times Award given for Science Fiction, essentially launching a new
sub-genre of Romance into orbit.
Science Fiction Romance
writer Linnea Sinclair wrote:
into Lichtenberg's story and be prepared for a gripping, complex yet
thrilling exploration of interspecies relationships as greed, loyalty,
passions and politics clash. I was captivated by Dushau, thoroughly in the
main character's court from the first chapter, and amazed at how
effortlessly Lichtenberg drew me into such alien yet believable minds and
worlds. Published in 1985, this is a book before its time by an author who
has continued to blaze her own stellar path through the subgenres of science
fiction. A worthy read! I want a piol!”
