River-Wander had studied in universities unknown to humans, fought beasts that would make any man run in fear and created a warrior species, which he was the leader of, to protect the world around him. But so far, he wasn’t doing a very good job of protecting his own meru. Rhodes, Zanger and River have bonded together and were determined to protect their female, even if it meant one of them must leave their fold for a dangerous mission. Can River hold his family together, knowing what his weru, Zanger, must do to survive? Or should he take his family and leave Earth all together?
