This is the story of humans stranded on an alien planet, the world of the atevi, where registered assassination is a way of life. They are the descendants of a space ship which lost its way 500 years earlier. Now humanity lives in exile on the island of Mospheira, trading tidbits of advanced technology for continued peace and a secluded refuge that no atevi will ever visit. Only a single human, Bret Cameron, the paidhi, (the foreigner of the novel) is allowed off the island and into the complex and dangerous society of the atevi, brought there to act as interpreter and technological liaison to the leader of the most powerful of the atevi factions.
