It is the day after Aimee Patterson’s high school graduation. College beckons, as does her dream of becoming an engineer. On an early evening walk, her cocker spaniel charges into the woods on the other side of the pond. Aimee trails after him, and in the stillness of that forest the unthinkable happens. She becomes paralyzed and watches in horror as her hands vanish before her eyes.
Waking to the sound of voices, Aimee realizes that she has been kidnapped. Little does she know how far away from home she is, though. In an attempt to flee her captors, she launches from their confines only to freeze at the view outside the window. The sky is black and filled with stars, and in the distance is a familiar blue globe. The planet Earth.
A group of humans forced to flee their planet after an epidemic destroyed their civilization now travel the galaxies in search of an antidote. Retrieving samples of plant life from every solar system, on this occasion Aimee was accidentally seized instead.
Aimee must learn to avoid the advances of an awkward young scientist who seems intent on dissecting her, as her own fascination turns to the exotic young warrior, Zak. Having fallen in love with Zak, she is now torn with the decision to return to Earth or live beyond the stars.
Best book ever!!!!
This is an amazing read! I felt like I was Aimee and I fell in love with Zak and was terrified by Salvan with her. Keep on writing! 💚
I got this as a Bookbub freebie and I read this all in one night! I love sci-fi, and this story had me geeking out for so many reasons, not the least of which being that the main character's name is the same as mine (albeit a different spelling), and I too played clarinet in band. I enjoyed the technical aspects and loved the storyline, and informed my husband that my next computer shall be named JOH. If you haven't read this yet, do it now. And um, maybe have a box of tissues and some chocolate handy for the last bit of the book. Just in case.
