She and all her people have been conquered by a primitive king whose dreams of destruction haunt him..and may doom all her kind. She is intelligent and loving, a devoted wife and mother. But Heao is not an ordinary woman. She is a member of a feline race, and her body, along with those of her peers, is covered with fur and ends in a long bushy tail. She is a member of the master race of Shadowland, the race that keeps human slaves to do their work for them, the race that stands in powerless awe of the firery ball of light that comes once a years..Godsfire!
