If the aliens knew, they wouldn’t let her travel with them. Antaska finds out it’s dangerous for telepathic females in outer space, but she doesn’t find out why. An un-Earthly attractive fitness instructor adds to Antaska’s problems. Desire, jealousy, and betrayal spiral out of control, but friends are there to help.
