From the New York Times and internationally bestselling authors of The Illuminae Files comes a new science fiction epic... It's 2380 and the graduating students of Aurora Academy are being assigned their first missions.
Tyler Jones has been a star pupil who hopes to recruit the squad of his dreams but ends up with a mixed and volatile crew. And Ty's squad isn't even his biggest problem - that'd be Aurora Jie-Lin O'Malley, the girl he's just rescued from interdimensional space.
Trapped in cryo-sleep for two centuries, Auri is a girl out of time and out of her depth.
But she could be the catalyst that starts a war millions of years in the making, and Tyler's squad of losers, discipline-cases and misfits might just be the last hope for the entire galaxy. Vividly told in the seven voices of the team members, this is fast-paced, action-packed, wickedly humorous and fabulously entertaining.
Described by one online fan as 'a mystery with tons of action.
A kind of thriller on steroids with a fantasy feel.'
