(A book in the Infinitum Government series)
An omnibus of novels by Megan Derr
Infinitum Government Code 184.108.40.2062: Genetic Experimentation Shall Be Strictly Forbidden KIDNAPPED No job is more arduous than that of Rehab Guard-those appointed to guard the many and varied prisoners within the Infinitum Government, the ruling power of a vast interplanetary alliance. To be a Rehab Guard requires very specific qualifications and years of specialized training. It is brutal, dangerous, and often thankless job-and there is nowhere else Sean would rather be. It keeps him safe, his deadly secret safely buried, and gives him a life as close to normal as he will ever come. Until the day new prisoner arrives, a genetically-engineered Draconis with the ability to 'match' to a suitable magics-capable individual and boost his power. Convicted of murder, he is sentenced to Rehab for life, and no one has ever escaped from Rehab. But no one counted on the prisoner matching with Sean, who as a human should not be capable of magics... MEANT TO BE The Draconis are a race of unexpected power and ability, complicated by their tendency to 'match' with other beings. The trial to decide whether or not they should be exterminated is about to begin, and both sides have gathered some of the brightest minds in the galaxy to argue before the Star Assembly of the Infinitum Government. Everything goes awry, however, when word comes down that High Chancellor Pyotr Kavalerov, staunchest supporter of the Draconis' right to live, has been assassinated...
