They are the aliens known as the Acruvae, who discovered the Human species hundreds of years ago, and haven’t left Earth’s orbit since.
A newly minted Seeker of the Institute, Griesen is ready for his first contact. He’s more than ready – he’s trained his entire career for it. There are also answers he’s burning to find as an orphan. Answers he knows can only be found on Earth.
However, as he initiates first contact with Halva, his assigned Human, he finds his progress systematically thwarted, with his own life put in grave danger – but by whom? And why?
In his race for answers, his survival becomes inextricably entangled with Halva’s – but can she transcend the confines of her human consciousness before time runs out for the both of them?
As the trail of mystery and corruption deepens, Griesen discovers perhaps the most dangerous thing of all – the threat of potential extinction that goes beyond humanity, buried deeply within the only home he has ever known.

A suspenseful novel full of twists about a girl striving to reconcile with her mother–a rich senator–who abandoned her at birth, set against the backdrop of a city caught in the grip of an unprecedented crime wave.
When Amber Faulkner strives to honour her dying adoptive mother’s last request to be reunited with her birth mother—the universally reviled politician Joan Simmons—she has no idea of the anguish and pain that lie ahead.
What dark secrets lie behind the reason her birth mother abandoned her when she kept and raised her twin sister? Why does her mother tell her that she didn’t want her then and still doesn’t want her now? How far will her mother go to keep Amber’s true identity secret to prevent a scandal that would destroy her political career and everything she’s worked so hard to build?
Why is her mother leading a small breakaway group of senators to side with the opposition to block legislation that will put over two thousand repeat violent offenders behind bars when the city is caught in the grip of an unprecedented crime wave of aggravated burglaries, rampaging teenage gangs, rape and murder?
Why is the nameless vigilante carrying out a campaign of terror against Joan Simmons and her family? Is he trying to force her to approve the legislation or does he have darker purposes in mind? Can Liam Fielder—the young man infatuated with Amber—live up to his assertions that he can protect her from the vigilante when she is caught in the crossfire?
