Plagued by nightmares and panic attacks, seventeen-year-old Jax Mitchell wants nothing more than a life of seclusion with only her twin brother for company. When he’s kidnapped by Earth’s reclusive alien settlers, the E’rikon, she’ll do anything to get him back– even form an alliance with a teenage E’rikon boy left behind by the same ship that took her brother.
Jax agrees to act as a guide and in return, the alien agrees to sneak her past the human-proof barrier surrounding the E’rikon city. Too bad it’s not that simple. She doesn’t know the alien’s true motives and he has no idea she is much more than she seems.
With the aliens and the humans at odds, the connection forming between the two teens has consequences. What started off as a rescue mission sets a chain of events in motion which threatens not only the remaining humans and the growing alien society but Earth itself.
