Civilisation has come to the alien, sunless planet its inhabitants call Eden. Just a few generations ago, the planet’s five hundred inhabitants huddled together in the light and warmth of the Forest’s lantern trees, afraid to venture out into the cold darkness around them. Now, humanity has spread across Eden, and two kingdoms have emerged. Both are sustained by violence and dominated by men – and both claim to be the favoured children of Gela, the woman who came to Eden long ago on a boat that could cross the stars, and became the mother of them all. When young Starlight Brooking meets a handsome and powerful man from across Worldpool, she believes he will offer an outlet for her ambition and energy. But she has no inkling that she will become a stand-in for Gela herself, and wear Gela’s fabled ring on her own finger – or that in this role, powerful and powerless all at once, she will try to change the course of Eden’s history.

Miki Jones lives life by her own strict set of rules, to keep control, to keep the gray fog of grief at bay. Then she’s pulled into the Game, where she – and her team – will die unless she follows a new set of rules: those set by the mysterious Committee. But rules don’t guarantee safety. People are dying. The rules are unraveling. And Miki knows she’s being watched, uncertain if it’s the Drau or someone – something – else. Forced to make impossible choices, Miki begins to see the Committee in a glaring new light. And through it all, she wishes she could confide in her best friend, Carly – about the Game and her feelings for Jackson – but that would put everyone she loves in danger. And Carly isn’t speaking to her anyway. Then the boundary between the Game and Miki’s real life is breached, threatening her friends and family directly. And there’s nothing in the rules that can save them now.

Life is just fine for fourteen-year-old Winston. She loves her dog, Thelma, and although she never knew her dad, and her mom left ten years ago in search of Hollywood fame, Winston has family with Nanny, who isn’t old at all! But a “just fine” life gets a lot more exciting when a letter arrives from Skye Harper, aka Judith Fletcher, aka Winston’s mother. She needs help, and Nanny says the best way to give it is to take a cross-country road trip – in a “borrowed” motor home – to go find Mama once and for all. Winston’s not so sure about this plan, but with a cute stowaway named Steve along for company and an adventure on the horizon, this is sure to be a summer to remember.

Miki Jones’s carefully controlled life spirals into chaos after she’s run down in the street, left broken and bloody. She wakes up in a place called the lobby – pulled from her life, pulled through time and space into some kind of game where she and a team of other teens are sent on missions to eliminate the Drau, terrifying yet beautiful alien creatures. There is no training and no way out. Every moment of the game is kill or be killed, and Miki has only the questionable guidance of Jackson Tate, the team’s secretive leader. He evades her questions, holds himself aloof from the others, and claims it’s every player for himself. Then Jackson says this isn’t really a game, that what Miki and her new teammates do now determines their survival and the survival of every other person on this planet. She laughs, he doesn’t, and the game takes a deadly and terrifying turn.
