Waverly, Kieran and Seth are in a race against time -
and with the future of humanity hanging in the balance, there's no
room for mistakes…
After a desperate escape from the enemy ship, Waverly has
finally made it back to the Empyrean. The memory of home has been
keeping her alive for the past months… but home is nothing like she
left it. Forced to leave their captive parents behind on the New
Horizon, she's returned only to find that Kieran has become a
strict leader and turned the crew against Seth. What happened to
the Kieran she thought she knew? Now Waverly's not sure whom she
can trust. And the one person she wants to believe in is darkly
brilliant Seth, the ship's supposed enemy. Waverly knows that the
situation will only get worse until they can rescue their parents -
Before they have time to make a plan, an explosion rocks the
Empyrean, and Seth and Waverly are targeted as the prime suspects.
Can they find the true culprit before Kieran locks them away… or
worse? Will Waverly follow her heart, even if it puts lives at
risk? Now more than ever, every step could bring them closer to a
new beginning - or a sudden end.
Waverly and Kieran are finally reunited on the "Empyrean." Kieran has led the boys safely up to this point, and now that the girls are back, their mission seems slightly less impossible: to chase down the "New Horizon, " and save their parents from the enemy ship. But nothing is truly as it seems.
