"Short but packed with likeable characters that deserve to find safety and experience true happiness this book was a huge surprise. This author has greatly intrigued me with the world building here. I did not expect to be hooked so easily but I found I genuinely felt a connection with the main characters . They are clearly between a rock and a hard place but they don't give up and their love for each other shone through. It's not an easy task to convey emotion with so few pages but I had no doubt that these two characters truly cared for each other. Brody came across as fiercely protective and caring whilst Lucy although quite young and naive nevertheless displayed tenacity and courage." -- Amazon reviewer

Life on the run can be very lonely.

Hunted to near extinction by an alien race called the Ko, my people have run from Earth and drifted so far among the stars we can't remember the way back. We live everywhere, but call nowhere home. The Ko want us erased from existence and memory. They don't even want our DNA in the space dust. Humans disguise themselves as other alien species and hide in plain sight. It's the only way we can survive.

I believe in the myth of Earth. I've even discovered a bona fide book written in the dead language of my people. My man, Brody, dreams of a secret human colony. He's searched for years, hunting any rumor we've run across, and finally he's made contact. Usually, he's the one grounding me to station and keeping my head out of the atmosphere. Time for me to return the favor -- that is, if I can ditch the Ko who've discovered me, thanks to my incessant artifact-hunting. If we don't make our rendezvous, and the Ko don't kill me, Brody just might...

CONTENT WARNING: Aliens, cargo ships, and a fast paced race against all odds.
