Description
Asher is a Lifer, a slave aboard the spaceship Pelican. A member of the lowest rung of society, she must serve the ship's Officials and Astronauts as punishment for her grandparents' crimes back on Earth. The one thing that made life bearable was her illicit relationship with Samuai, a Fishie boy, but he died alongside her brother in a freak training accident. Still grieving for the loss of her loved ones, Asher is summoned to the upper levels to wait on Lady, the head Official's wife and Samuai's mother. It is the perfect opportunity to gather intel for the Lifers' brewing rebellion. There's just one problem the last girl who went to the upper levels never came back. On the other side of the universe, an alien attack has left Earth in shambles and a group called The Company has taken control. Blank wakes up in a pond completely naked and with no memory, not even his real name. So when a hot girl named Megs invites him to a black-market gaming warehouse where winning means information, he doesn t think twice about playing. But sometimes the past is better left buried. As Asher's and Blank's worlds collide, the truth comes out everyone has been lied to.
