In a land where everyone is sleeping, two strangers have just found themselves awake. Hunted for reasons they cannot understand, discovering abilities they cannot control or explain, they have to find a way to survive what just might be a nightmare.
For years, Enya Royston has hidden from herself and her abilities, fearing the destruction that always comes with using them. The others embraced their talents, but she turned away from them. Now, though, everything has changed, and their paths have twisted up together again, forcing them to reevaluate the choices they made and how they will go forward from here. The past stands ready to destroy them, and if it doesn’t get them, their enemies will.
For most people, being likened to a black hole is an insult. For one alien, though, it is an accurate description. A child of the vortex, subject to an insatiable hunger, he fights against his own nature to consume. His kind know only destruction, but he seeks knowledge instead, a way to keep the hunger from devouring everything. At the very least, humans have been… entertaining.
