In the future, only one rule will matter:
Don’t. Ever. Peek.
Seventeen-year-old Ari Alexander just broke that rule and saw the last person she expected hovering above her bed—arrogant Jackson Locke, the most popular boy in her school. She expects instant execution or some kind of freak alien punishment, but instead, Jackson issues a challenge: help him, or everyone on Earth will die.
Ari knows she should report him, but everything about Jackson makes her question what she’s been taught about his kind. And against her instincts, she’s falling for him. But Ari isn’t just any girl, and Jackson wants more than her attention. She’s a military legacy who’s been trained by her father and exposed to war strategies and societal information no one can know—especially an alien spy, like Jackson. Giving Jackson the information he needs will betray her father and her country, but keeping silent will start a war.
I have two things to say:
1. How gorgeous is that cover? I think I've been starting at it for about ten minutes straight.
2. This sounds so incredibly, incredibly awesome.
Aliens? Secrets? Military strategies? Floating people? It's safe to say my attention is caught. Melissa West is a debut author, so all of you participating in the DAC, definitely add this one to your shelves. It looks fantastic.
Now, if you'll excuse me, I think I'm going to stare at this cover for another few hours.
