The Retreat (The After Trilogy, #1)

6cd7bd2f-d1fe-4b8f-a0af-b02254d07c0fEarth was ruined. Humankind destroyed. And it’s old news. Romy’s life is simple—for a genetically-enhanced space soldier; pick up space junk with her four friends, and stave off the invaders fixated on stealing Planet Earth.

It isn’t much. But it’s temporary—only another 850 years to go, give or take. When her crew tangles with a gulp-worthy alien mothership, Romy’s return to Earth is brought forward with hurtling pace.

Strength comes from the unlikeliest of quarters. As does leadership. …As does betrayal.
