He and his warrior mate have come to Earth seeking human females to bond with. A male of almost 400 years old, he can't believe how captivating his new human female, Amy, is.
But Dasks' race can sense deception and lies - he can smell fear. Amy is keeping a secret from him. When a Castian mates, he mates for life. If Amy dies, so will Dasks. Dasks must decide if he can live without her - because if they mate he will surely die with her.
