An ancient prophecy. A terrifying threat. A regular girl destined to become a hero - whether she wants to be one or not. Yesterday, Astrid was a normal sophomore at an elite college in a sleepy California town. Her biggest problem was trying to figure out how to get hottie Chad Olson to notice her. But today, after an otherworldly meteorite nearly destroys her home, she discovers a shape-shifting bounty hunter is hot on her trail. Her only hope for survival is to team up with Jax, the arrogant handyman, who works for her uncle. Lucky for Astrid, Jax turns out to be more than meets the eye. In her quest to stay alive, Astrid learns the dark truth about her past, along with the knowledge of how she fits into an ancient intergalactic prophecy that foretells the fate of the entire planet.
