Welcome to Asteria, a corporate-owned, deep-space colony populated with refugees, criminals and obsessive online gamers. Genny O'Riordan has shifted in from Earth determined to find a story that will break her blog into the Stellarnet Top 100, and even better—expose the degradation of the colony's denizens.

Duin is an alien—a Glin—a hero of a past revolution against the Glin royal family, yet branded a terrorist. Duin speaks every day in the Asteria market, hoping to spur humans to aid his home world, which has been overtaken by the evil, buglike Tikati.

When Genny and Duin meet, what begins with a blog post becomes a dangerous web of passion and politics as they struggle to survive not only a war but the darker side of humanity...

Jen Hilton is a new author that shouldn't be missed! I read an advance copy of this book and I LOVED it! This book kept me thoroughly engaged and entertained even though I normally do not read scifi. It is very well written, interesting, creatiive, funny and suspenseful! The character development was well done and I became invested in the charcters and cared about the progression of the story. I think this story will appeal to a wide audience. Pick this book up and read it, you won't regret it!
