Orphaned on a muddy planet and reared by giant paramecia, Lydia observes with inoculated indifference as the nearby Gaean Empire crowns its new, ugly Empress. As the new Empress is crowned, one of the paramecia attempts to stop the coronation, his investigation of Lydia's heritage indicating she is far more than an ambassador's daughter. Lydia's life goes haywire. Pursued across the galaxy, she tries to discover why her fellow humans have taken such a sudden dislike to her, and why her adoptive paramecia are going to such lengths to protect her. Going into hiding takes her deep into the seedy underground of New Athens, the Imperial capitol, where the secrets of her past are buried, her parents' deaths no accident.
