Ebook Description

"...offers the best of both science fiction and romance." -- Booklist For fans of ENDER'S GAME, THE HUNGER GAMES, and BLADE RUNNER, comes a story of video gaming, blood, and power. Ever since the Delonese ice-planet arrived eleven years ago, Sofi's dreams have been vivid. Alien. In a system where Earth's corporations rule in place of governments and the humanoid race orbiting the moon are allies, her only constant has been her younger brother, Shilo. As an online gamer, Sofi battles behind the scenes of Earth's Fantasy Fighting arena where Shilo is forced to compete in a mix of real and virtual blood sport. But when a bomb takes out a quarter of the arena, Sofi's the only one who believes Shilo survived. She has dreams of him. And she's convinced he's been taken to the ice-planet. Except no one but ambassadors are allowed there. For Miguel--Earth's charming young playboy--the games are of a different sort. As Ambassador to the Delonese, his career has been built on trading secrets and seduction. Until the Fantasy Fight's bomb goes off. Now the tables have turned and he's a target for blackmail. The game is simple: Help the blackmailers, or lose more than anyone can fathom, or Earth can afford. From the award-winning author of the Storm Siren Trilogy, step into a diverse cast of characters spanning from the electric metropolises of earth to the chilling alien planet above, in a story of re-finding yourself in the midst of losing the one thing you love. Before it all evaporates."Mary Weber spins a compelling tale with lyrical beauty and devious twists.

Mary Weber takes readers on an intergalactic journey intertwined with complicated family issues, politics, loyalty, secrets and betrayal." ~New York Times bestselling author, Wendy Higgins "Political overtones, betrayal, blackmail, sexual tension, genetic testing, and questions...will leave readers lost in thought." -- School Library Journal  "A cool vision of future Earth that realistically reflects an increasingly multicultural world." -- Kirkus Reviews "Fascinating future with a captivating gaming aspect, complicated political and personal relationships and a constant watchful alien presence." -- RT Reviews, 4 ½ stars, TOP PICK "A fun, fast-paced, geekfest of an adventure that will appeal to fans of Blade Runner and The Hunger Games." --Smith Publicity 'A creepy, imaginative, plot-driven dystopian tale (with diversity) for fans of sci-fi or Suzanne Collins' Hunger Games.
