Kira is still in high school, a superstar, and the youngest to play professional sports on Mars. She is also an AG Populist wishing to shift power to the people from the Sovereign and the Royals. Shawn was the Royal “Designated Consort” for the Sovereign, M, and is trying to move on since she has a graell bond with Rigel. He is also a high school superstar. Kira’s parents decide to move to Earth right after the team qualifies for the playoffs! Throw in former Council member Allister Adair and Governor Lennox with their own schemes to overthrow the Sovereign using Kira to create a bigger mess.
Finally, the Grentl aliens who transported an Irish village to Mars 2,000 years ago, performed some genetic experiments, and then left after 1,000 years. Nobody knows what the experiments were or why they left. Their final contact with M in the prior book after they tried to end the experiment did not feel quite right – too mushy for such powerful beings. I suspect that the experiment is still going on and maybe Kira and Shawn is another key. I had to read it twice to see it, though.
I really like Hiatt’s writing style showing the viewpoint from both major characters. I have read every one of her books.
