It wasn’t the aliens she had to worry about; it was the humans.

A troubled young woman is recruited by a race of ancient alien explorers to be their Emissary to save the human race from its impending extinction. The problem is that not everyone believes the world is doomed, and not every one trusts the aliens’ motives. Holly Burton will have to overcome opposition from world leaders, attacks by religious zealots, assassination attempts, intractable bureaucracies, and her own fears and doubts if she is to save the human race, not just from the coming apocalypse, but from itself.

She will also have to become a very different person than she has been if she is to lead a remnant of humanity into space and become the architect of a new civilization. The question is: Can she use the extraordinary knowledge and abilities given to her without losing her own humanity in the process?
