Meet Zoe Boutin-Perry. Daughter. Colonist. Icon. The only hope for the people she loves.
Sixteen years old.
Zoe thought when her parents were selected to lead a new colony world, that the three of them would begin a new life among that starsóbut the colony isn't what it seems. Zoe, her family and her fellow colonists are unwilling thrust front and center in a struggle between the human Colonial Union and the alien Conclave, and there's no guarantee that any of them, human or alien, will survive.
Zoe is more than just a teenager caught in the middle. Her unique past makes her the one person who can save her colony, and in saving it, save humanity. But it won't be easy, or simple, or sure. Zoe will need every bit of her intelligence, wit and will to help her family and friends, and make it back to them alive.
