In Earth's near future, extraterrestrial refugees are trying to integrate with a more evolved human race. Mental empathy now manifests in the general population, defining an upper class that favors human-alien segregation. The job of keeping the peace falls to the alien-led teams of the Earth Planetary Defense.


During a time when Earth is filled with alien refugees from another star system, the human race has continued to evolve. For some, those with the talent for mental empathy are the final word on any relationship: compatible or not, with a future or family potential or without. These arbiters have become people of privilege in a "High Society" that doesn't welcome alien influence.

Caught between human and alien is a man who rejected his empathic birthright and joined the more progressive movement toward interstellar integration. Part of the police force that maintains order among the refugees, Sky works undercover in High Society by night. His loyalties are tested when a chance meeting and an accidental marriage make his psychic powers flare.

Jack and his sister are more human than not, but neither of them have anything to do with the upper class. Alien or human, it doesn't matter to them. They've been on the streets with only each other to depend on for as long as they can remember.

When Jack meets Sky in the shadows of a High Society function, they’re both instantly out of their depth. The only thing Jack trusts less than the wealthy elite is law enforcement, and the only thing Sky wants more than justice is not to draw attention to himself.

Neither of them will get what they want, but if they work together, they might be able to keep what they’ve found.
