Earth: A.D. 2070
As the granddaughter of Earth’s most revered hero, seventeen-year-old Zia has been pampered and adored her whole life. She has no political ambitions or lofty goals – she just wants to have fun. But when Earth faces a shocking new crisis, she realizes it’s time to prove she inherited more from Quito the Great than just fabulous hair, perfect cheekbones, and a reckless streak
Another mech invasion looms, this time against one of Earth’s allies, a planet on the far side of the galaxy, and the only thing that will save them is the giant robot created to honor Quito the Great.
Rem Stone is everything a girl could want. Heck, he’s everything a country could want. The twenty-two-year-old has just graduated from the military academy with top honors as the country’s newest pilot. It doesn’t hurt that he’s also drop-dead gorgeous. And when duty calls, Rem steps up, honored to volunteer to pilot the robot. There’s one hitch, though: the robot can only be piloted by a Quito. And that Quito is Zia.
Together the two set off on a journey that takes them far from Earth, and closer to each other, and puts them in a battle for the safety of the galaxy.

A Junior Library Guild Selection
"Amid spy intrigue, coded messages, fairly improbable escapes, a budding romance, and bold derring-do, our quick-thinking, thoroughly engaging protagonist triumphs and the plot never slows. Garretson reaches beyond adventure, too, providing a haunting nuance to the horrors of war through her heroine’s eyes... An action-packed, yet sobering journey into the war to end all wars." —Booklist
"This is the sort of book you want to hide in your closet and read so that no one disturbs you until you're completely finished." —Samantha Hastings, author of The Last Word
