Waking up in the hospital from the car accident that claimed his mother’s life, 15-year-old Tommy is told his father is on his way. Unaware of his father’s true identity or the reason he left so long ago, the teen is unprepared for the reality of the life he must now lead. In the blink of an eye Tommy finds himself on an alien vessel…his father is not from Earth!  The challenges Tommy faces go beyond adapting to a new home and school. But first, he has to survive Jayden…the reluctant, unsympathetic tutor, tasked to help him fit in. When he finally thinks things are getting better, it all comes crashing down as he learns that being born with amethyst eyes has made him the target of some very unfriendly beings.

  

“From the first moment when you are dropped right into the action, through the different developments in the story, from the emotional journey to the physical one, the book grabs hold of you and won’t be put down.”

Three years after his arrival onboard, Tommy begins Specific Training to assume his place in his father’s society. The transition to adulthood, laden with unexplored emotions and overwhelming responsibilities, have made this unstoppable change too much to handle. Tommy wants to go back home, to Earth, to a way of life he’d been forced to leave behind. An unforeseen attack on his father, a disaster on Earth, and the added weight of responsibility take their toll on the young man, who suddenly finds himself struggling to save the ones he loves.

Author note:  I had been carrying the idea for this story around for over ten years, and when I lost my baby girl, I needed to do something to stay sane.  I needed to create a world where people did care about one another.
