But life on the planet-spanning station is neither as glamorous or simple as she imagined. In fact, Aveari is about to find out just how cut-throat things can be in the dark deeps of the Halo.
Will the sheltered life she’s led so far be the death of her? Can she find the strength inside to survive or will she become just another footnote in someone else’s story, fading into obscurity as her light is swallowed by the overwhelming darkness at the so-called centre of civilization?
