2399 AD: In a small corner of a post-collapse world, a 16 years-old black girl refuses to give up her 27 years-old white dad to a theocratic world empire where nobody turns 28. And where even the concept of ‘family’ had to be reinvented to survive.
What this girl doesn’t know: she is one of a hundred humans selected by aliens for a First-Contact destined to save humanity from itself.
Aliens that do not arrive from outer space, but from within her dreams.
Aliens that possess a technology so dangerous, so filled with the promise of power, that they only dare share with the winner of the Trials of Worth and Soul. The games are on!
The immediate price: a technology to save her father. But she can’t do it alone.
The ultimate price: a technology to save the world from the third—and last—collapse.
