Asher has a secret. A secret that, if the ever-watchful government or vigilantes find out, would kill him. Living in the secluded Willow Wood manor has kept him away from prying eyes for 16 years, but one night, everything changes. When his safe haven is compromised, Asher must seek out his father for the first time and find a way to hide in plain sight onboard a junior academy starship. Asher has to deal with his past while forming an unexpected future among the stars and ensuring that no one finds out who...or what...he is.
