The job is simple -- land illegally on the mysterious and unspoiled planet Cicora, drop off two aliens and a human, collect the pay, and go home to life as a tourist pilot. Oh, and ask no questions. But when Fiona Quinn?s ship crashes, she is stranded on a strange planet with a gorruff, a mahtree, and a man. And all she has is questions.
As she struggles to survive, Fiona will have to endure the wild, avoid alien police, and overcome her worst enemy -- herself. She will transform from a meek, shallow person into a resourceful, humble being. And as the reality of a rescue fades further away, she'll have to learn what it really means to be alive and civilized when she faces the ultimate question -- does she even want to go back?
