An alien supersoldier on the run. A doctor who has no one else to rely on. Can they save the ship's occupants, or will they be the only two left alive?
Alien supersoldier Kugah needs the human's wormhole technology to find a new home, one far away from the alien race who created him and want him back. The only future he envisions is a life alone, far from anyone he could hurt. Then he meets the human doctor, Amelie. Her gentle, caring nature opens the possibility of a future with someone by his side.
Dr Amelie Benton's interest is purely scientific of course. But when the ship's passengers begin to show signs of unnaturally rapid ageing after a desperate trip through a wormhole, and everyone around her starts falling ill, she has no one she can count on other than the strong, silent alien.
If she can't find a cure for the ship's passengers, soon she and the alien might be the only two left alive on the ship. Will they risk their growing connection on a desperate rescue mission?
