Narrators: Khristine Hvam, Jodie Harris & James Patrick Cronin

YOUNG ADULT: Harlow, a Zeek from a planet called Zadok, is haunted by a life she once lived as a woman named Ruby from Earth. Memories of her brutal murder surface every night she sleeps, and soon she finds her spirit shadowing that of her still living twin on Earth, Jade. On Zadok, Harlow is a pastel, a Zeek of low stature and little importance. After being attacked by a wild animal, she gets the attention of a commander named Jax. From there, things start to spiral out of control, and Jax fast becomes her friend. On Earth, however, she is drawn to the spirit of a man named Alex…who just so happens to be the twin of the man who murdered her. Alex also lives on Zadok, and Harlow is determined to find him.
