PROJECT FRONTIER
For fifty years, Project Frontier has brought together the best and the brightest to save the future of mankind. That future lies on Pollux: a planet formed in Earth's likeness. Leena Cote was nine when she was recruited, and for a girl who couldn't stay out of trouble, and whose parents struggled to make ends meet, the decision was more than simple. At sixteen, Leena’s time has finally come.

When Leena begins the 180 day intergalactic journey aboard the Pioneer, her dreams of becoming a scientist are crushed before they start. The Project Frontier leaders assign her to be a Ranger: a position that Leena has never even heard of. And her training onboard the ship points to something dangerous, something lethal. But just when Leena’s future on Pollux seems bleak, Win, a fellow Ranger, teaches her that life on the new planet may be the right start she has always wanted.

Yet unbeknownst to Leena, Pollux holds secrets that she could never imagine. For the first time in her life, the dying Earth she left behind seems like a dream compared to the deadly planet that she has no choice but to call home. But then again, there’s one rule in Project Frontier, one cardinal rule that drives every person on Pollux: Don’t look back.

Because no matter what Leena does, there is no going back.

SAUDADE
At seventeen, Mara already knows what her future will hold. She will one day be the Head Caretaker, she will marry the Caller's son, Jonah, and she will never leave the Cade: a small village where everyone has a trade and everything has a purpose, from the petals on a flower to the ashes in the fire pits.

But one day, a small envoy of visitors from the distant Citadel arrives in a flurry of gold and silk. Days later, Mara awakens to a nightmare when Jonah is kidnapped by the visitors from the Citadel.

Time is of the essence, and Mara's only option is to venture across the withered landscape outside of the Cade into a land torn apart by centuries of abuse by its former inhabitants. Because only one thing matters to Mara: getting Jonah back. And she will do whatever it takes to find him, even if that means journeying to the mysterious Citadel with Aiden—the young man who broke her heart.

Helena dreams of returning to the outside world and leaving behind the heavily regulated world of the Eyam Complex, a place where everything runs according to plan…until one fateful morning.

Things begin to change in the complex. And after everything dear to Helena—her father, her brother, and her boyfriend—is taken away, she finally gets what she wants.

But life on the outside isn't what Helena expected. Never in her wildest dreams did Helena think that she’d leave Eyam only to become so desperate to get back in.
