Teracia is a member of the aquatic Fahr, the oldest and most powerful sapient species in the galaxy. The Fahr are addicted to song, so much so that they’ve created large corporate entities. These travel around the galaxy on interstellar oceans collecting pets that can sing.
She’s on the ship when it arrives on the Earth in the middle of the 14th century. They discover humpback whales, singers of the most powerful and addictive songs the Fahr have ever encountered. Collecting the whales, however, is likely to seriously damage a plague ravished and stagnant humanity. Teracia, against all odds, is determined to stop that from happening.
