Honey Cantrell was a comic book geek who enjoyed hanging out with her arcade-hopping friends. Then the aliens known as Celestials showed themselves to Humans, and Honey was thrust into a life she had never imagined.
Things got worse for Honey when one of seven Celestial Orbs chose her for a role she was not qualified for. The Celestials needed a captain for their massive ship, a ship with a mind of its own, and the Orb selected Honey.
Honey had barely adjusted to the new responsibility when her Orb revealed a new, darker secret.
Her humanity was at risk.
She had become the reluctant subject of an illegal experiment implemented by her Orb’s previous owner. Her body was changing and no one knew what to expect, least of all Honey. With her future up in the air, she is forbidden to share her secrets with anyone. Resenting the lack of control over her own life and her new responsibilities, she closes herself off. Honey attempts to be as unsociable as she can…until she meets her new partner, Sammus. After that, she is forced to deal with unexpected feelings, jealous squad members, a plot for revenge, and a dangerous alien mating ritual.
All Honey wanted was to be invisible but it’s getting harder and harder. Can she build a relationship with Sammus? Trust her classmates? Lead a ship filled with aliens? Most importantly, can she learn how to thrive in this new body, now that she’s only Mostly Human?

Five people must deal with the alien message received on the Cydonia Mensae on Mars. Humanity must not leave its solar system until it has cleaned up the pervasive criminal behaviour and corruption at higher levels. Worse, if humanity learns about aliens, a treaty will expire and humanity will face a much-advanced aggressive neighbour. Four of the five accept what has to be done, but can they reach power, wield it properly, and survive? Nathan Gill wants to be left alone, but he must influence Martian politics. Grigori Timoshenko dreams of building a defense force capable of deterring advanced aliens, but how, when he cannot mention aliens? When thrust into power, Fiona Bolton dreams of a fair life for the independents, while Sharon Galloway dreams of successfully managing the greatest engineering feat in human history. Jonathon Munro dreams of being important, but the only way he can is through murder and extortion, and that cannot be admitted publicly. They soon learn that dreams rarely correspond to reality, and in this dystopian future, murder and sabotage make achieving dreams unusually difficult.
Whether it is a whispered voice, a slight touch, or an object moving mysteriously, there is a thin veil between the worlds and those worlds sometimes collide. Lindy Wilson knows all about that, and when those collisions escalate, it will take help from both worlds to save her from the evil she unknowingly unleashed.
