The last humans spent centuries searching for a new Earth. Now they face extinction.
For three hundred years, arks have carried the last remnants of humanity through dark space. The ships are old, failing, and every colonist must do their duty to ensure the fleet’s survival.
Maeve is a metalworker, toiling in the blistering sublevels of the London. She’s lost friends and family to the hazardous work conditions and fears every job she’s assigned could be her last. All she wants is a little control over her life, but the oppressive sublevel enforcers ensure that’s not an option.
Now, after decades of traveling, the ships have finally reached their destination: Soren, a toxic planet that may have the resources they desperately need. But mining a planet comes at a price, and Maeve and the other workers will be expected to pay it with their lives.
If a better world awaits, Maeve’s sure to be dead long before the fleet finds it… unless she finds a way to control her destiny and change it.
A brutal conspiracy threatens humanity’s survival.
Three hundred years ago, the Earth died, and the last humans fled. Beaten. Broken in more ways than one. But there was something they couldn’t leave behind: The Legacy Code—mangled genes that force them to abort half their unborn children.
When Era and Dritan Corinth get placements on the safest ship in the fleet and win a chance to have a child, they feel lucky. Until the day Era’s supposed to find out if her baby has the Defect, and the ship suffers a hull breach. An investigation uncovers new threats: Dangerous secrets. Lies. Treason. Era begins to question everything she’s been taught about the fleet, their search for a new Earth, and the Defect. But the answers she seeks were never meant to be found…
Tadeo Raines knows what they say about him. It’s all lies. But lies are better than the truth.
He broke the rules once and swore he’d never do it again. Now traitors plot against the fleet, and he’s tasked with hunting them down and stopping them. Permanently.
Tadeo was born to command, born to lead the last remnants of humanity to a new Earth. He knows there’s a better world out there: Daylight at the end of humanity’s long night. And he’s willing to do whatever it takes to get the fleet there. Even if it means walking the line between loyalty and treason. And breaking the rules… Again.
