Having foiled Commander Collinar’s plot to enslave the Earth, Master Pilot Forrorrois is reassigned by the Dramudam to covertly protect her non-spacefaring world from further disruption of its natural technological development. She assumes the cover of her former life as Danica Jolan and returns to her family. In order to keep her mission a secret, Forrorrois allows everyone to believe that she had runaway at age fifteen. But, she soon realizes that she can’t erase the pain that her unexplained disappearance caused her family for the past four years. Her unwillingness to talk about her absence drives a wedge between her and her family. Forrorrois’ only ally is Jack Stern, a colonel at the nearby air force base and lead investigator for the Observable Classification Unit (OCU). As a friend of her family, Jack attempts to heal the rift between the Jolans’ and their daughter. This is a difficult task since he too is keeping her secret from them—as well as from the U.S. Air Force. Forrorrois’ struggle for normalcy is quickly dashed when she’s faced with a new threat: a terrorist cell focused on stealing the plans for the DoD project her father is working on. Can Forrorrois find a way to protect her family without revealing her secret to them, the FBI or the US military?
