Fi’s destiny becomes clear, and it’s the opposite of what she wanted: vast, mired in politics, and critically important to far more than her beloved Earth.
City life isn’t everything Seg had hoped. New Denver’s residents enjoy luxuries that Providers never imagined, consuming the results of their hard work while giving little in return. The only thing he finds of interest is the Mars Museum—especially after his blind white eye spots an alien artifact in one of the exhibits that no one else can see.
Even that exciting discovery falls by the wayside when a man possessing Fi’s same exotic features shows up on their doorstep, claiming to have traveled across the galaxy to meet her. The stranger’s story also hints that the artifact in the Mars Museum may be the only one in existence, belonging to the galaxy’s progenitor race, the Volnath, who mysteriously vanished millions of years ago.
Tragedy strikes when Seg vanishes without a trace during a daring attempt to retrieve the priceless artifact from under the Federation Nation’s watchful eye.
To have any hope of discovering her lover’s fate, Fi must team up with the mysterious stranger, whose motives remain questionable, and learn to use her abilities in ways she’d never imagined.
Ways that, if she isn’t careful, could have consequences far more devastating than even the Fall.
