She is lost on an alien planet. He said he'd help her get home. He lied.

Jessica's plane develops engine trouble over the dry Australian inland—and crashes in thick, unfamiliar rainforest.

A group she thinks is a search party shows up, but it consists of large-eyed not-quite people who kill all survivors except Jessica and a long-haired hippie named Brian.

No one is going to come to rescue her. In fact, they're not even on Earth. 

While the pair wrestle their way through the forest in search for help, Jessica becomes ever more suspicious of Brian. Why does he know so much about the world where they have ended up? Why is he so insistent on helping her?

Jessica has always been able to use her mind to tell animals what to do and now she's hearing voices in her head. Another man is pleading her not to listen to Brian. Except this man can kill someone with a single look, and he uses his mental powers to order people around.

In this utterly strange and dangerous world where people seem to want something from her, who can she trust?

A gritty survival story in the vein of The Hunger Games, set in a Star Wars locality.

    A coming of age drama, revealing myriad ancient secrets as well as exposing a bigoted, alien political system. At times difficult to follow, maybe worth a second read to catch all the subtleties that add to solving some of the mysteries.

    Didn’t grab me at first. Had to push to stay with it. But soon I became captivated.
