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.”
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.
