**Can the world find a way back from darkness, if there is no hope to light the way? **
*"So the world is better off because you love me?" Aerie asked.
"My world certainly is." His icy blue eyes softened as they locked into hers. *
Aerie and Exton are still at war with the Revolutionary States, but there is much to celebrate. Now that they are together again, Aerie finally has what she's always wanted: A loving home. But her past, and her parents, are far from letting her move on with her new life. When Merra further escalates the war with her treachery, Aerie is faced with an impossible choice: Save her mother, or betray Exton.
Years after his father's murder, Exton finally has the killer at his mercy. But General St. Cloud has a surprise for him—the truth about Silas's death. While Exton struggles with the ghosts of his past, his allies face dire threats at Panama, where a battle has ensued over a shipment of weapons. The stakes are raised even higher as the dictator of the fair world himself, Grant Osgood, launches the GPI, his Global Planethood Initiative, in hopes of finishing off the Perdition and demolishing the defectors' hopes for liberty.
With the fate of the planet on the line, Aerie and Exton know each of their decisions could mean the difference between victory and defeat. Can they pay the price that war—and true love—demands?
Enjoy the pleasure of finishing the Divine Space Pirates trilogy, a science fiction romance series for teen and young adults, as Aerie and Exton's love faces off against the pressure of a world at war.
