The earth-shattering sequel to Laura Liddell Nolen's THE ARK. As she stands before a jury about to sentence her to death for betraying the Remnant to the High Commander, it's easy to say that stuff didn't go to plan for Char. But as she prepares for the promise she made herself of reuniting her family to dissolve into space with her, an unexpected help gives her a second chance to make everything right again. Isaiah is still fighting for the Remnant's independence in the Ark, and Char's only choice is to help him if she is to find her brother. But a far larger conflict is brewing out in space, and Char's promise is about to be tested like never before.
