A woman from the past. A cyborg with no future.
They have every reason to mistrust each other but one: survival.
When Nell Stafford passed out it was 2012. When she wakes up naked aboard a
starship it's 2138, and she's surrounded by the Syn-En: synthetically-enhanced
soldiers with a grudge against humans like her. She doesn't know where she is or
what's happened, only that her world has been destroyed and everyone she's ever
known is dead.
Their leader Beijing York has just discovered his people's
creators--humans--have betrayed them. They were promised freedom and equality in exchange for settling
a newly discovered planet at the other side of a wormhole. But the Syn-En have
outlived their usefulness.
The offer was a trick.
The wormhole has collapsed, and now both Nell and the Syn-En are trapped far,
far from Earth to face almost certain death.
Bei has lost his future, and Nell has lost her past.
But Nell gained something in her 120-year sleep; somehow, she knows everything
the Syn-En need to survive. Now she must convince Bei and his people to trust
her--as soon as she learns to trust the mysterious intelligence.
