A Star Destroyed. A World Lost in Fire.
My name is Jansa Kell of the Spacefaring Caste.
A devastating blast wave of solar energy is headed for Helios Prime. Moments before impact, I’m rescued by my daughter, Sarys—a military pilot who came back for me against orders. When she loses all contact with the military, we have no one to rely on but each other.
We don’t know what’s happened to the leaders of our world or its military. Have they abandoned us, or like so many others, have they perished?
Alien mercenaries hunt us, but we don’t know why. Some of our planet’s survivors are spared, but we’re not sure if it’s a trap to ensnare more of us or if they’re targeting us specifically. As danger closes in, we must escape and follow the trail wherever it leads.
We can’t have a future until we know why our true enemy wants to kill us. With every move we make, they seem one step ahead. Our world is as dead as our shattered star, but we have to find out the truth and preserve our world’s legacy. If we falter, I fear they’ll kill us too.
