Doctor Lilly Quinn thought she lost her husband Jace in the mission that brought Michael Tanner home. The mission that set into motion the revelation of the Areth's true face. She had reconciled herself with raising their baby alone.
But miracles still happen and somehow Jace is back... at least his body is, though weak and brutalized. His heart, his mind, is still trapped somewhere in the darkness of an enemy prison. He has no memory of who he is, what Phoenix is, or why he went AWOL from Earth Force to join, what his mission was the night he was captured, and worst of all he has no memory of his wife.
Somehow Lilly has to find a way to awaken his heart again.
All the while their oppressors breath hot and angry down Phoenix's neck… waiting to wipe them out along with the rest of the human race. The enemy is at the gate, and it is time for Phoenix to prepare for battle. Revelations, mindboggling truths, and surprise allies clash together to set Earth on the road to destruction or salvation. No one knows what is to come.
