Always run, never fight. Preserve the knowledge. Survive at all costs. Take them to the stars. _________ Germany, 1945. Mia, a nineteen-year-old girl, is sent by the OSS to find Wernher von Braun: Germany's - and the world's - foremost rocket scientist. Her mission: stop the Russians getting hold of him. But von Braun is suspicious. And so he should be. For Mia is no ordinary girl. She only looks human. And helping the Allies win the Second World War is just one part of her plan . . . Because there's an even darker conflict on Earth. A secret struggle thousands of years old. One that has taken generations of Mia's people. But can the firing of rockets finally bring about its end? Can Mia, as the last of her kind, bring the stars down to earth? And if she succeeds, what will happen to us? _________ 'Wry narration, wired action . . . Fans of alternate history and intelligent sci-fi will love this' Publishers Weekly 'Clever and compelling, it will keep you enthralled until the end' Robert J.
