If he loses her, he’ll lose his will to fight.

Shane and his friends survive the first major attack against the enemy, destroying the alien ships that came to harvest the children of Earth and turn them all into slaves. However, one ship escaped, and the aliens have captured Kelly. Shane will do whatever it takes to save her, but turning his back on his friends could jeopardize the whole mission.

The enemy invades Kelly’s mind, turning her into a slave soldier. She’ll follow their orders, even if it means murdering her friends, including her little sister and Shane. She is helpless, trapped inside her body while it performs heinous tasks under the direction of her new masters, while her sanity and desire to live fade.

Shane returns home to make a rescue attempt, only to find Kelly commanding an army of human slave soldiers, and she’s determined to make him join her ranks. Will Shane save Kelly before she gets to her sister, or will she help the enemy enslave the rest of humanity?


     “Is it possible humans did this?” the admiral whispered, staring at the view screen.
     “Anything is possible, but that’s what makes this species so promising. With proper programing, they have the capacity to crush our enemies. They could secure a stabilized growth Anu has not experienced since the early days of the empire.” Athos paused. “If only they can be controlled.”
     “Clearly, they cannot,” the admiral replied, his eyes widening as if panic might overtake him once more.
     “Perhaps they can,” Athos countered.
     “We need to contact command and have them send assistance. We can’t do anything by ourselves.”
     “Are you so certain?” The general rubbed his chin. “By the grace of the gods, whatever happened down there didn’t happen to us. This vessel has ten thousand slave recruits in her hold, most of them already programmed. They seem fully under our control.”
     “Do not ask me to land this ship on that forsaken planet again, General.” The admiral pointed at the view screen, his expression growing firm. He knew he was in command as long as they weren’t on the ground. “I won’t jeopardize the Pegasus or her passengers.”
     “I’m not suggesting you should,” Athos said calmly, gazing at the planet once more. “A commander must do what he feels is right.”
     He knew the coward would take some coercion, but his weak personality promised he could be swayed.
     “For argument’s sake,” he mused with a distant tone. “Imagine if we could get this harvest under control. You would be promoted to fleet admiral. Everyone on this ship would become the richest people on Anu. Your fame and fortune would be that which is reserved for the gods and heroes of legend.”
     “More likely, we would all die with the effort,” the admiral replied. “We’d go down in history as the universe’s biggest idiots.”
     “I’ve been at this a long time,” the general said, careful not to sound condescending. “I’ve seen a lot of young admirals grow frustrated and gray, never able to rise higher than the command of a single vessel.” He paused, letting each word soak in before proceeding.
     “You have an older sister in line for your father’s position on the Council,” Athos pointed out. “Do you think you’ll ever see a higher rank than you currently hold?”
     It was a rhetorical question. The aristocrat’s father had paid a rich man’s fortune for his son’s post, but money couldn’t raise him beyond this command. As etiquette required him to dine with the senior officers during the voyage from Anu to Earth, General Athos had learned a bit more about the admiral than he cared to. Now, however, he could see the payoff of this relative and sometimes nauseating intimacy.
