A Science Fiction adventure featuring a futuristic "it" girl who is destined to save the world.
Earth: A.D. 2070
As the granddaughter of Earth’s most revered hero, seventeen-year-old Zia has been pampered and adored her whole life. She has no political ambitions or lofty goals – she just wants to have fun. But when Earth faces a shocking new crisis, she realizes it’s time to prove she inherited more from Quito the Great than just fabulous hair, perfect cheekbones, and a reckless streak
Another mech invasion looms, this time against one of Earth’s allies, a planet on the far side of the galaxy, and the only thing that will save them is the giant robot created to honor Quito the Great.
Rem Stone is everything a girl could want. Heck, he’s everything a country could want. The twenty-two-year-old has just graduated from the military academy with top honors as the country’s newest pilot. It doesn’t hurt that he’s also drop-dead gorgeous. And when duty calls, Rem steps up, honored to volunteer to pilot the robot. There’s one hitch, though: the robot can only be piloted by a Quito. And that Quito is Zia.
Together the two set off on a journey that takes them far from Earth, and closer to each other, and puts them in a battle for the safety of the galaxy.
