The Le'enle are magical creatures, undying, powerful beyond the dreams of the mortal species they share the galaxy with. But with their powers come responsibilities; visiting a mortal world, Distant Song is confronted with one of those responsibilities, not to abuse her power. Even if it means the storm she does not turn away reaches landfall, and the people living on the coast...
