Shai is sent to the strange, high-tech world of the Outerlands where she agrees to trade her personality and memories for implanted ones in order to capture Ava. But her old life keeps resurfacing; interrupting her mission and twisting her perception of what’s real and what’s not. Who can she trust when she can’t even trust herself?
As Shai tries to navigate the foreign world with a new persona that keeps misfiring, she meets an Outerlands’ soldier who seems frighteningly familiar. Struggling with a strong emotional connection to him and haunting dreams, she reminds herself that remembering her old life is not an option if she’s to complete her mission.
But when the Outerlands’ soldier kidnaps her with the intent to eliminate her, she must pull on the fragile threads of her shattered mind and put the pieces together to get out alive. The truth–when she finally remembers–is shocking.
