Publisher Description

Rosalinda Fitzroy has been asleep for sixty-two years when she is woken by a kiss. Locked away in the chemically induced slumber of a stasis tube in a forgotten subbasement, sixteen-year-old Rose slept straight through the Dark Times that killed millions and utterly changed the world she knew. Now, her parents and her first love are long gone, and Rose— hailed upon her awakening as the long-lost heir to an interplanetary empire— is thrust alone into a future in which she is viewed as either a freak or a threat. Desperate to put the past behind her and adapt to her new world, Rose finds herself drawn to the boy who kissed her awake, hoping that he can help her to start fresh. But when a deadly danger jeopardizes her fragile new existence, Rose must face the ghosts of her past with open eyes— or be left without any future at all.

Couldn't put it down!

It brought me into a futuristic world through the eyes of Rose Fitzroy, a "16"year who has been stuck in a stasis tube 62 years by her abusive parents. With the only boy she only loved long gone and being the only heir to an interplanetary company she must figure out how to live again. while dealing with her attraction to Bren, who "kissed" her awake. If all of that isn't enough there is a untraceable mechanical assassin after her though nobody knows who sent it after her. I love how this book eloquently combines science fiction, mystery, and romance. This book is realistic and unpredictable. Well worth the price. One of my new favorites!!!
