One space station.
And the girl who holds the key.
Tesla Petrov, daughter of an infamous traitor, no longer lives a life of promise in the Atlas space station's elite flight training program. Stripped of her military rank and banished to the slums, she now scrapes out a brutal existence competing in illegal robot fights for Minko, ruthless leader of the Red Ashes crime syndicate. But when a wrong move costs her a fight—and a fortune—for the crime lord, Tesla knows her days aboard the Atlas are numbered.
Daxton Larose isn't just visiting the station to celebrate the Centennial of the Crown—he's hunting a terrorist threatening to end a century of peace on Earth. To do so, he’ll need someone who knows the station. Someone willing to strike a deal at any cost.
Someone like Tesla.
But as the hunt for the terrorist uncovers secrets from both their pasts, Tesla and Daxton realize that nothing, and no one, is what it seems.
All revolutions come at a price.
Tesla Petrov barely made it off the Atlas alive. Haunted by those murdered aboard the space station, she's desperate to seek revenge for everyone she's lost. That is, until the monster responsible for the slaughter convinces the world she's to blame for the attack. When a ghost ship adrift in space offers a chance for Tesla to prove her innocence, she'll have to join forces with Torvin Zaile, the brooding rebel captain who sees her as nothing more than a liability to his cause.
Daxton LaRose lost his crown, his family, and his heart aboard the Atlas. Now trapped amongst the very revolutionaries he sought to stifle, reclaiming his throne has become a deadly game of cat and mouse. There's only one thing of which he's certain: the ghost ship holds a secret...
One Daxton would die to keep.
The world is closing in. The revolution has begun. But when the recovery mission reveals a weapon no one expected, Daxton and Tesla find themselves thrust into two wars—one for the crown and one for their hearts.
