What happens when love brings loss? When love brings lies? When love brings hate? Olivia and her twin brother Aidan are heading alone back to Earth following the virus that wiped out the rest of their crew, and their family, in its entirety. Nathan is part of a community heading in the opposite direction. But on their journey, Nathan's ship is attacked and most of the community killed. Only a few survive. Their lives unexpectedly collided, Nathan and Olivia are instantly attracted to each other, deeply, head-over-heels - like nothing they have ever experienced. But not everyone is pleased. Surrounded by rumours, deception, even murder, is it possible to live out a happy ever after . . . ?

Review:

[This] gripping story has plenty of strong emotions to play with: love, hate, fear, jealousy and more than a dash of betrayal. * Telegraph * A combination of Star Trek, Ten Things I Hate About You and a murder mystery. What's not to like? -- Tony Bradman * Guardian * Full of nail-biting adventure, interstellar conflict and then passion . . . keeps us guessing to the last. -- Nicolette Jones * The Sunday Times - Children's Book of the Week * The former Children's Laureate is never afraid to tackle challenging issues . . . a thrilling love story. * Mail on Sunday - Children's Book of the Month * ...with love, danger, treachery, jealousy and tragedy . . . I read it in two breathless sittings and I absolutely loved it. -- Fiona Noble * The Bookseller * A gripping two-hander. -- Alex O'Connell * The Times - Children's Book of the Week *
