The moment I realized I had to go back to Earth, I panicked.
It wasn’t a little bit of panic. It was the kind that sucked the air and light from the room and made my body go cold with sweat and fear. I knew that if I did this, if I went back, then I had a shot of saving everyone—Earthers, Aunare, everyone—but it could cost me everything and everyone I love. And it could cost me my life.
But that moment of panic passed. It was still an insane, stupid, deadly idea, but the more I thought about it, the more I knew going back to Earth was the only plan that made sense.
Lorne agrees that this is the right plan, but he wants to come with me. We’re married now. A team. A unit. Where I go, he goes. It was in our marriage vows. And while I love that, I know that going to Earth will hurt him. He’ll want to see where I lived, how I survived, and seeing, knowing, understanding my past better will only hurt him. And yet, I don’t have a better plan.
There will be no hiding there. Not anymore. Everyone on Earth knows my face.
The vids of what happened on Abaddon and Sel’Ani have played throughout the known universe for months. But seeing those vids opened the Earthers’ eyes. They realized that I’d been fighting for them for years before I left. I’d taught martial arts, patrolled the streets, and helped save as many of them as I could. And now, somehow, my story has inspired Eathers to speak up and act out.
My name has become the rallying cry of the revolution.
Returning to Earth is risky, but nothing in life is without risk. I’m not afraid anymore. All I feel is determination to win. I won’t stop until SpaceTech has been destroyed.

This was dangerous, but I knew I could do it.
I knew we could do it.
And when it was done, SpaceTech would understand exactly who they were messing with.
They might have arrested me. They might have beaten me down, broken me, and tried to kill me. But they hadn’t. I wasn’t dead. And I wasn’t stopping until SpaceTech—and everything Jason Murtagh and his father had built—was destroyed.
