Une jeune fille égarée dans le grand désert rouge de Tayma aux confins du système Primien découvre les ruines d'une cité enfouie. La descente dans les entrailles de la planète va se transformer en un véritable cauchemar...Sunflower renoue…
Although told with tenderness and sensitivity, the telling is raw and vivid as the women conduct their business, and the buyer of the sex for hire service they provide repeatedly follows his nature and seeks to find love and romance there instead. The otherwise intelligent and resilient man in this story recognizes the folly in that, so comes to think of these encounters in the shadowy world of sex and drugs as adventures; as fantasies separate and apart from the reality of his everyday life.
He finds it more and more difficult to keep fantasy separate from reality, however, as the torment that ever permeates his being remains with him and seeps from him as he ventures back and forth from the one realm into the other, until something startling happens that changes everything.
