"Pulse-pounding, laugh-out-loud funny and thoughtful."
Myke Cole


When out-of-shape IT technician Roen wakes up and starts hearing voices in his head, he naturally assumes he's losing it. He isn't. As of last night, he has a passenger in his brain - an ancient alien life-form called Tao, whose race crash-landed on Earth before the first fish crawled out of the oceans. Over the millennia his people have trained human heroes to be great leaders, to advance our species at a rate far beyond what it would have achieved on its own. Split into two opposing factions - the peace-loving, but under-represented Prophus, and the savage, powerful Genjix - the aliens have been in a state of civil war for centuries. Both sides are searching for a way off-planet... and the Genjix will sacrifice the entire human race, if that's what it takes. So now Roen must train to be a hero worthy of his unwanted companion. Like that's going to end up well... "Wesley Chu is my hero... He has to be the coolest science fiction writer in the world." - Lavie Tidhar, World Fantasy Award-winning author of Osama
