Ronin – Part 2
As the elite of human society continues to stray from humanity's biological origins, one man seeks an alternative route. The route fortune places in front of him will one day turn him into a traitor.
Part 2 of the Ronin short stories, also set in the Conquerors of K'Tara universe, follows Ronin who has now found his way into the Empress’s Army, as he searches for a better place to live on. As he had hoped, the army has indeed outfitted him with an electronic voicebox and other enhancements, which allow him to communicate easily with the fullhumans on the other planets they visit—and in particular with the fullhuman girl he had met on Earth’s Downside, in Part 1. But, has he found what he was truly looking for, or will his yearning for a place without Tec lead him down a dangerous path?
