The Kinley built a ship capable of traveling faster than light, and it carried a group of scientists to a small, distant planet-Earth. When their ship was destroyed, they were stranded. They buried remnants of their technology deep beneath the desert and sent a last message home…
Kinley hovers on the brink of extinction. An enemy that nearly obliterated their race has risen again-with the ability to destroy them for good.
A lone soldier named Pruit is sent on a desperate mission: follow the ancient beacon back to Earth and recover the secrets to faster-than-light travel. Technology that once allowed them to cross vast reaches of space might allow them to outrun their enemies and find a safe world to call their own.
Pruit’s quest draws enemies after her and awakens ancient foes on Earth. At every turn she finds adversaries willing to risk everything to stop her, each one hoping to steal the knowledge for themselves. The rivals meet in modern-day Egypt and their struggle alters the fate of worlds.
