Our Latest Release
For most of her adult life, Trinity Knox has lied in order to conceal her psychic talents. Now she’s been trapped in the biggest lie of all….
After she makes the mistake of trusting the wrong man, she finds herself in the hands of the Gaian government, with only two options left to her: Serve time in the Consortium’s MaxSec prison on Titan, or agree to go on a secret mission that requires someone with her particular set of skills.
Altered biologically to hide her human identity, Trinity is sent to the mysterious world of Zhoraan, where she must unearth secrets the alien Zhore have been hiding from the Gaians for generations. But the longer she stays among the aliens, the greater the chances her deception will be discovered, and the greater the chances of her losing her identity, her soul…and her heart.
