Book Description: 
Hunted to near extinction by an alien race called the Ko, my people have run from Earth and drifted so far among the stars we can’t remember the way back. We live everywhere, but call nowhere home. The Ko want us erased from existence and memory. They don’t even want our DNA in the space dust. Humans disguise themselves as other alien species and hide in plain sight. It’s the only way we can survive.
I believe in the myth of Earth. I’ve even discovered a bona fide book written in the dead language of my people. My man, Brody, dreams of a secret human colony. He’s searched for years, hunting any rumor we’ve run across, and finally he’s made contact. Usually, he’s the one grounding me to station and keeping my head out of the atmosphere. Time for me to return the favor…that is, if I can ditch the Ko who’ve discovered me, thanks to my incessant artifact-hunting. If we don’t make our rendezvous, and the Ko don’t kill me, Brody just might…
CONTENT WARNING: Aliens, cargo ships, and a fast paced race against all odds. 
My Review:

I found myself drawn into this very interesting and exciting science-fiction romance.  Humans have been hunted and after the near annihilation of them, they are now hiding in plain sight.  Lucy and Brody are a couple of humans who have been searching for a safe home for years.  Lucy is fascinated by all things human and finds herself in trouble after locating a human book.  Brody has been protecting Lucy and himself while quietly searching for other humans and any type of place where Brody and Lucy can finally live and love each other freely.  I loved this tale of love and hope.  Annie Nicholas has written a fantastic story filled with action, adventure and love.  It was a well written and engrossing book and I am looking forward to more in the Known Universe series.
