The Aoilites come from the skies, and no one is able to stop them. Each visit ends the same way: one hundred thousand people vanish. If rumors are true, the abducted are fodder for an alien world's appetite.
Like everyone else living under the totalitarian regime of the North American Alliance, Adelyn Innsbruck fears the Aoilites. She doubts they'll ever threaten her home, though; Juno Ridge is too small a community for the mass harvesting of people. She's more concerned with caring for her five-year-old brother, Nikeen, and coming to terms with Kaden, the young man who blames Adelyn-not without reason-for his parents' deaths.
Then the Aoilites come to Juno Ridge. When they depart, Nikeen is gone, and Adelyn and Kaden find themselves alone and unable to cope with the loss of their loved ones. War with the Aoilites is imminent, and after the capture, the duo are on the run from the government that now deems Adelyn as much a threat as the aliens.
Adelyn doesn't have time to consider the consequences. She's only got one goal-to rescue her brother. To do so, she'll defy anyone in her way, be they alien or human.
