Finley Harper, one of four performers belonging to the pop group Affinity, thought she had dodged the draft. At least, she and her group members had been told they had successfully dodged the draft. But with the war against the Furies, an ever-evolving species of ravenous, cruel creatures, raging each day, the state was bound to catch up.
Forced into military service at the infamous Bratiss Point and appointed as a Harpy pilot, Finn discovers that Furies are not her only enemies. As an insidious plot unfolds around her, Finn must forget her past as a pop idol and develop the skills and grit to withstand the hardships of being a pilot - or else become fodder for the Furies.
