Kea Alwang lives in New Jersey building worlds, reading, and indulging in severe caffeine and chocolate addictions. Her podcaster husband, film-obsessed son, book-munching daughter, and self-absorbed parakeet are among those who put up with her unnatural attachment to the keyboard. Despite creating characters who can’t wait to leave this planet, she actually loves the Earth, but wishes bullies and the word moist would just disappear.
To take their minds off nightmares of their nemesis, symbiont-aided sentinels Star, CK, and Leada accept a long-term assignment to protect a utopia from a vicious cult. Amid faulty memories and a frustrating search for truth, the team wonders if their risky decisions come from the hearts of warriors or the fears of wounded children. One thing is certain: This is not the time to find first love.
