Fix your planet or we'll do it for you, warns the Alliance - and take your home world from you.

All Ethan Winter ever wanted was to run his family's solar energy business. But that business has been attacked, he's been imprisoned and brutalised, his planet threatened, and to save them he must work with a woman set on fighting him every step of the way. The planet Arcadia's environment is dangerously unbalanced and the Alliance is demanding they fix it or lose their home world. The Alliance of Human Worlds doesn't make empty threats.

Union organiser, daughter of a workshop supervisor and a fiery politician, Sarwenna Beren is set for battle from the moment Ethan Winter arrives at her remote desert town surrounded by rumours of change. He's rich, powerful and heir to the family that owns the town's main business, a massive solar field stretching deep into the desert. His arrival threatens the jobs of all those who have put their trust in her. Sar isn't about to let him shut down the one place keeping her town alive.

Then a frightened boy runs off into to the desert. Ethan's flyer is his best hope of rescue, but he needs Sarwenna's local knowledge. Together they try to trace the boy's flight--only to come under attack from a strange beam and an unknown flyer that nearly kills them both. Ethan and Sarwenna must find out find out who is behind the mysterious attacks and why before they succeed. It doesn't help that both have their own suspicions about who is helping their attackers. Suspicions that must be kept secret, especially from each other.

You don't betray family.
