Looks can be deceiving. Kelli looks like a typical teen, but she is far from average. At seventeen, she is beautiful, a genius with computers, and a master criminal. What she isn’t, is human. Tortured by that fact, Kelli is willing to do anything to find out the truth about the father who abandoned her years ago. The father she knew and loved as a young child was an imposter. DNA had proven that he had been an alien. Not just someone from a foreign country, he was from another planet, and she was the result of his “first contact” with humans.

“Come Home!” The words pierced her dream like a javelin hurled across space and time, dragging her from a nightmare.

Following that summons, Kelli begins a quest to solve the mystery of who and what her father was. She joins the first interplanetary student exchange and travels to Aldebar, a planet with seven sentient species. Will she find answers there among the diverse peoples? Will she find a home? Her extraordinary journey will include a notorious info-raider, a sentient computer program with a deadly subroutine, and the honorable, ever truthful Degg. With their help, she will attempt to unlock the secret of who and what she is and find a home where it is okay not to be human.

Tobar is a dying planet. The very people inhabiting it are destroying all life and magic there. Not even the power of the Stones is immune to the destruction. The magical wall protecting the Nellari people is failing and the Stones themselves are dying.

Annis, a half-blood Nellari, and granddaughter of the High Priestess, is chosen as First Daughter. She struggles to save her people, but no one heeds her warning. No one believes the rebellious young First Daughter, except perhaps Josylnn, the powerful but acerbic Stone she is bound to. 

These two make an unlikely pair. Annis is young, uncertain of her power and place in the Nellari world. She does not want the responsibility that the Stones have thrust upon her. Josylnn is a powerful stone who has waited to be chosen for hundreds of years. She has a high opinion of herself and little patience with her young charge.

Disaster strikes and all hope for Tobar is gone. Annia and Josylnn must join forces to save a remnant of the peoples on Tobar and one brave tree called Forest. Together, they journey into space to find a new home for everyone. But they have not left behind the anger and hate that destroyed Tobar. Will it destroy them before they reach their new home?
