“All teenage girls keep secrets and Kerry Johnston is no exception. More than anyone else she knows how to lie, for ‘Kerry’ is an alias and her life is a nightmare of secrecy, violence and fear. In reality this overweight, limping teenage girl is Qea, a Forbidden child from the Qarntaz Octad, sent to Earth to hide from the warlord she has betrayed. Born third into her family in an overpopulated world where surplus offspring are Forbidden and killed or delivered as fodder for the malevolent Inquisitors, Qea has spent her life in hiding.
When Kerry returns from school to find the people she calls Mother and Father missing and the house deserted, she realises that her enemies have found her. She becomes ‘Donna’, and takes refuge in a small seaside town where she meets Adam and, against all her instincts, falls in love, discovering parts of her self she never knew existed. But then Adam betrays her, giving her location to her enemies and before she can stop it, she and Adam are whisked back to the place of her nightmares, the war torn Qarntaz Octad.
Qea and Adam find themselves at the mercy of the Octad’s inhabitants and hostile terrain, and soon they are fighting, not only for their own lives, but for the lives of all Forbidden children. Qea realises that her destiny lies out here amongst the stars and that her adventure is far from over. But she also knows that she and Adam might not survive and now she must decide: is she human enough to help Adam and the others or will she abandon them all in order to live?”
