Reese and David are not normal teens-not since they were adapted with alien DNA by the Imria, an extraterrestrial race that has been secretly visiting Earth for decades. Now everyone is trying to get to them: the government, the Imria, and a mysterious corporation that would do anything for the upper hand against the aliens.
Beyond the web of conspiracies, Reese can't reconcile her love for David with her feelings for her ex-girlfriend, Amber, an Imrian. But Reese's choice between two worlds will play a critical role in determining the future of humanity, the Imria's place in it, and the inheritance she and David will bring to the universe.

Editorial Reviews

"Adaptation...had plenty of fun to give. The sense of play-of allusion, homage, and, forgive the pun, adaptation-with source materials like the typical "YA love triangle" and the conspiracy-SF narrative empire of The X-Files makes this book read almost like a love letter to genre, while it is at the same time clearly having a roaring good time fooling around with the things it's built on...the novel is a fast-moving escalation up to a climactic point-where it stops, leaving the reader waiting and eager for the next and final installment."
