Em's life is taken over by beings from "out there somewhere." Trouble is the being in question is a rookie. Of course he messes up.
With blood on her hands, strange words coming out of her mouth, and her face all over the media, Em knows she did stop the jungle battle, storm into the armed courtroom, face and defeat the zealot soldiers. But, as she works for the aliens controlling her, her emotions are torn between what she knows must be her real life and the life she is now living. How is it that she is able to step into the middle of a war and stop it without getting killed? How is it she doesn’t remember her “old” life? And, how will she decide whether or not she wants this sci fi life that’s been thrust on her?
Yves, the god assigned to take care of Earth, is a rookie learning to be a Power. Em is not the only one confused and agonizing. Coming from the sterile world of the gods, Yves succumbs to human emotions. Jealousy takes over as he watches Em and her lover. He plots to end their affair, but in doing so risks losing his chance for advancement, his chance to free his people, even risks losing his life. Yes, love hurts.
