After years of submitting to her stepmother’s unreasonable demands, Trystan finally has a chance to be free. The promise of a new life, in exchange for her help. Simple, right? After all, the old woman has only asked for one night. One night, one beautiful gown, one dance… and one message to be delivered to a mysterious recipient. It should be easy. Maybe even fun. Especially when she can slip away into the night after the dance, leaving no clue as to her identity.
Live or die, stay or go, the choice is meant to be easy… I can either board an alien spaceship with my fellow criminals or rot in prison on a dying Earth. The spacecraft’s captain, a handsome alien who looks remarkably human, has been visiting me in my dreams for over a year. He has given me the companionship I need during my time locked up in my prison’s solitary confinement and the way he holds me in the dark makes me forget the Earth is on the brink of extinction.
