A Lone Planet. One Complex.
On the run in the Complex, with an assassin on her tail and her newly-awakened magic a complete mystery to her, Emilea needs a miracle. What she gets is Maddax, the man who betrayed her.
To protect the family name and rid himself of his misfit daughter, Emilea’s father strikes a deal to surrender her to the Complex, a social experiment that forces humans to co-exist with hostile Metas. Emilea wakes up in an unfamiliar world, drugged and shipped there against her will.
Maddax couldn’t help falling for her. The feisty human who kicked his ass in the illegal street fights he’d been sent to investigate undercover had captured his heart. And even though she thinks he betrayed her, he’s determined to prove her wrong.
As the secrets of her birth are revealed, Emilea learns that the man who broke her heart also saved her life—and would pay any price for her freedom.
Now that she’s imprisoned in the Complex, with a bulls-eye on her forehead and a father who would stop at nothing to see her dead, Emilea has a decision to make. Trust Maddax and his conviction that he can save her—or risk it all and flee the Complex, forever a fugitive.
