An amnesiac alien and a former slave decide the fate of the last city on Earth.

Ava is an anomaly. She has the appearance of the enemy alien race known as Stargazers, with her lavender hair and eyes, but the human capacity for love and forgiveness. Any other captured Stargazer would have been executed, but not her—defying long held notions of who the invaders of Earth really are. Julius Pallas, the leader of Sanctuary—an outright dictatorship, encased in a dome to keep out Stargazers and the human Resistance—has been absent from the adoration of his pious citizens ever since her capture—as she’s being held in a doctor-ridden mega-facility known as the Corporation.

Ava has amnesia—not knowing who she is or where she came from. She rejects that she’s a Stargazer, but she isn’t entirely human either, with the strength to crush a man’s bones. The key to everything lies with Pallas, who orders her torture and imprisonment inside the Corporation. When the two finally meet, Ava will discover her true identity, her connection to him, and why he’s been alone for a millennium without her. Now that he thinks he has her back, he’ll discover how greatly she’s changed, and how her destiny may just ruin his murderous empire.
