17 year old Clea’s mother is the leader of a rebellion on an alien world. She learns that she must return to her mother’s world and use the rebellion’s secret weapon to destroy the demon god-king who terrorizes the planet. But she also learns of her mother’s imminent execution, and is torn between rescuing her mom and fulfilling her duty. She and two other teens from Earth are transported to this dangerous planet. They must defeat cannibals, the king’s immortal soldiers, and fanatically devoted loyalists in order to reach the capital… if only they could stop fighting amongst themselves.
