Fleeing for their lives, Jess and Pavel make it to the Moon, narrowly avoiding the attack on Space Station 92-AE. They should be safe and happy, but they discover they are not alone on Tranquility Base. The stranger they encounter seems uniquely qualified to leak their presence to Chancellor Lucca Brezhnaya, especially when the Marsians contemplate airing Lucca's political dirty laundry. But Lucca has already shown she would destroy worlds rather than see her secrets exposed.

Helia dreams of restoring Earth so humans can once again flourish beyond the walls of Haven, the last remaining city on a planet decimated by centuries of pollution and abuse. It'd also be nice to not have to hide her relationship with alien Kalo, who arrived years ago with his people and an offer to help humans in their fight for survival. But the human-alien partnership is crumbling. Humans are being detained. People are starting to disappear. Helia's world, where humans balance on the edge of extinction, is becoming even more perilous.

When the alien leader imprisons Helia's mother on a false charge, Helia begins to uncover the conspiracy behind the aliens' presence on Earth. Now, she must join forces with alien rebels and put into motion her own secret invention--and it's humanity's last hope. If she succeeds, humans have a chance at survival and she has a chance at love. If she fails, the dwindling human race dies out in slavery.

Humans on the verge of extinction. Aliens who claim they've come to help. Perfect for fans of Ender's Game, Divergent, Legend, and The 5th Wave. Download this free eBook and begin the adventure!

NOTE: This is an updated and re-titled edition of the book previously published as Helia's Shadow Part One (Starlight Age Series Book 1).
