Anne Blankenship has only seen blurry photographs and rough sketches of the aliens. All she knows is that one day, they invaded Earth, and then the next, NewMerica was forced to live within a force field to protect its people from the creatures.
But for Anne, that happened over a thousand years ago, and all she cares about now is to pass her career test and become a doctor like her father. But riots in the streets and rumors of rebellion distract Anne from her main goal. Not only that, but the announcement of “The Royal Lottery” and a chance to meet the prince add to the chaos around her.
