Set ten years prior to the events in TOTENTANZ, the commercial passenger starliner Cyndriel's Hope is hijacked by members of the paramilitary terrorist group The Warriors of the Black Flame. Their leader- Haakem Tigonn- demands the release of other members of the group currently imprisoned in exchange for the Cyndriel's Hope and all aboard her. The clock begins ticking as the terrorist will kill one hostage every hour until their demands are met. One of the passengers- Galan Rojai, a young man with extraordinary gifts- decides to fight back, and with the help of the ship's engineer, does what he can to keep the hijackers at bay and off balance until help can arrive.
