Yet this is no ordinary kidnapping. Tamara has been living on a star freighter in deep space, and her kidnappers are Crowpeople - the only aliens humanity has ever encountered. No-one has ever survived a Crowpeople attack, until now, and Tamara must use everything she has just to stay alive. But survival always comes at a price, and there's no handbook for this hostage crisis. As Tamara comes to know the Crowpeople's way of life, and the threats they face from humanity's exploration into deep space, she realises she has an impossible choice to make. Should she stay as the only human among the Crows, knowing she'll never see her family again, or inevitably betray her new community if she wants to escape?
