Scientists and their families stationed on the remote planet of Fosaan were promised a tropical vacation-like experience. But Fosaan, devastated from an apocalyptic event nearly three hundred years ago, is full of lethal predators and dangerous terrain. Earthers are forbidden to go beyond the safety zone of their settlement and must not engage the remaining reclusive Fosaanians, native to the planet. Sixteen-year-old Quinn Neen is about to do both of those things.
When Quinn discovers a beautiful Fosaanian girl named Mira stealing food from his family’s living unit, he hopes to convince her to help him explore the planet. But before he can convince her, scientists are taken captive, leaving Quinn and the other young Earthers at the mercy of space raiders and those who would bring Fosaan back to its former glory. Quinn must go from renegade to leader and convince Mira to become an ally in a fight against an enemy whose very existence threatens their lives and the future of Earthers stuck on Fosaan and at home.
