It is the end of the twenty-first century. Droughts and floods have left Earth on the brink of collapse, with limited resources and habitable land. Erin Lobart, a bright young student living on the remote island of Tinian with her adoptive parents, is partnering with rescue teams to deliver food and medicine that is barely keeping civilisation afloat. On her sixteenth birthday, Erin and her best friend, Sam, make a startling discovery.
Ten thousand years ago, an alien race was driven from Earth by ancient humans. Now they have returned to Earth using perfect human replicas to understand and eventually control the human mind. Stronger, invincible, immortal, and with a technical superiority beyond comprehension, the Rom-Ghenshar are fuelled by a zest for revenge while plundering Earth’s remaining resources. As Erin realises her life is inevitably linked to the aliens and that she is Earth’s only chance for survival, she struggles to decide where her loyalty lies. But as she is about to learn, only her newfound love has the power to determine her destiny and that of humanity.
