Young Eleena is forced to flee her homeworld during the last evacuation before the Hatana’s fleet arrives, leaving her parents behind. She takes comfort when the voice of God, Atua, assures her parents are in his hands. Her faith is shaken when the fleet razes the planet leaving it uninhabitable for generations.
Eighteen-year-old Amiran is the Hatana’s heir, but he’s vowed to stop his father’s brutal march across the galaxy. Shortly after putting Eleena on an escape shuttle, Amiran is captured by his father’s scouts. Sentenced to serve in the mines and then the fleet he hates, Amiran holds onto the memory of Eleena’s tearful plea for Atua to protect him.
Separated by space and years, the refugee and the prince must both come to a new understanding of what it means to be in Atua’s hands. Can they find the faith to trust in the voice of Atua to stop the Hatana?
