Sixteen-year-old James Fisher lives on the distant planet of Castor where he toils for the ruling classes as an indentured servant. He’s a “Half-Adapt”—one of thousands like him who were shipped to Castor from Earth and biologically altered so they could breathe the planet’s atmosphere unaided. As Earth fades in his memory, James resigns himself to life under Castor’s strict social hierarchy. But then he meets his master’s nephew, Vidal Centa, and their strong attraction for each other begins to transcend Castor’s rigid class stratums. Encouraged by his friend, Femi, to join the defiant Independence Society, which seeks to overthrow Castro’s punishing oligarchy, James faces a difficult choice. As his feelings for Vidal intensify each day, he must wrestle with loving the young man who represents everything the Society hates and fighting for justice. As the civil war threatens to erupt, James fears if he continues to fight he’ll destroy his relationship with Vidal, and perhaps the entire planet.

About the Author

Shaun decided he was going to be a writer at the age of fifteen because it would mean being able to live anywhere in the world.

Since then he's managed to remain in Ireland, mostly by choice, but the dream lives on. His passion for writing has never diminished, and to this day he's happiest when surrounded by books. A computer and science nerd almost from birth, he now writes YA science fiction and spends too much time coming up with new concepts for stories that he'll get around to writing any day now.

Feel free to get in touch with recommendations of unusual, strange, unsettling, or otherwise intriguing books. His to-read list is already obscenely long, but there's always room for one (or ten) more.
