Thirty years ago, there was the Collapse. A massive war fought with biological weapons and followed by plague. Almost everyone died.
Ten years ago, the aliens showed up. They made one of our cities their own and that’s where they stay, for the most part anyway.
One year ago, I killed two men and went a little crazy.
Today, the aliens took my brother and I will do whatever it takes to get him back even if it means partnering up with the enemy, an alien boy who makes me think things I shouldn’t and makes me feel things I don’t understand.
In seventeen-year-old Jax Mitchell’s world, the Collapse has driven humans nearly to extinction and aliens have arrived and taken over one of the major cities. The E’rikon stay isolated in the city behind a human-proof barrier, but the tension between them and the surviving humans is starting to rise.
A traumatic event for Jax prompts her twin brother, Jace, to relocate them from their secluded cabin to the safety of a nearby settlement. Living there is difficult for the tomboyish Jax, especially since its militant leader keeps a close eye on her and attempts to force her into compliance with the stifling patriarchal rules.
During an unauthorized trip outside the walls, Jax comes face to face with some of Earth’s alien invaders when they kidnap her brother. To get Jace back, her only choice is to form an uneasy partnership with one of the E’rikon, a teenage boy left stranded in the woods. She agrees to get him home as long as he helps her get inside the city.
But there’s much more to it than Jax and her alien companion realize and far-reaching consequences to their budding relationship that they never imagined. In her single-minded quest to rescue her twin, Jax sets a chain of events in motion that affects not only the remaining humans and the growing alien society, but the future of Earth itself.
