Abstract:

Billie only wanted what all children want, the warmth and security of family, the human connectedness that comes from belonging. What she got was a nightmare without end. Wilks was a space marine with a near-fatal flaw: he had a heart. Thrown together in the last hellish night of an Alien invasion of a far-flung colony outpost, Billie and Wilks fought together to survive. Thirteen years later, Wilks is in prison and Billie lives in a mental institution, the nightmare memories of the massacre at Rim seared into her mind. Now the pair get a chance to be reunited, to return to that outpost where it all happened, to finally end the business between themselves and the Alien monsters that altered their destinies and destroyed their dreams.
