He expected searing heat. He expected acid rain. He even expected the sunburn from hell. What he doesn't expect is to meet the most prickly, irritating, and fascinating girl he's ever known.
Kerit never wanted to explore the universe, or even go into space. Not like his space force captain brother. But somehow he finds himself following him half way across the galaxy to help terraform an inhospitable planet. Maybe he does have something to prove after all.
Folly has plenty to prove, but the most salient is to find her father's ship and show that he was a brilliant scientist. Accompanied by her cheeky albino pet skuttle, Chicken, she doesn't need any more help, certainly not from the cute stranger who thinks he knows what is best for her.
But shadows lurk in the ruined city, and Kerit and Folly realise someone—or something—is hunting them. Can they survive long enough to find out if their attraction is more than just surface deep?
