Summary

“Be brave,” I whispered to myself. Be brave and fight, I repeated over and over in my head. I was at the edge of the stadium, magnificent beasts stood before me. Remember what he told you, remember. Chase Montgomery is your typical human girl. She has a boring day job, goes out on weekends to get smashed, and even has a hard time getting dates. Not that she cares about dating at the moment; she's just trying to live. That is until she meets a handsome stranger in a bar one night while bar-hopping with acquaintances. Thrust into a spaceship, the mysterious alien tells her she has a far greater purpose: to die on a foreign world to appease his people. A practice, so aptly named the Human Trials, has been going on for hundreds of years. Its creator, K'lyair has a far more sinister plan in mind. After all, these trials were never meant to be survived and only as a front for something devious... like taking over the universe perhaps? Chase comes face to face with something she never dreamed could happen. Surviving space, a brooding alien, and the trials appears to be the least of her worries.

Prologue

“Be brave,” I whispered to myself.

Be brave and fight, I repeated over and over in my head. I was at the edge of the stadium, magnificent beasts stood before me. Remember what he told you, remember… I sucked in a deep breath but, before I knew what I was doing, I began running in the opposite direction.

“This is not bravery.” It’s cowardice. What are you so afraid of? Dying?

“Yes.”

I was arguing with myself, which happened a lot, honestly. But I couldn’t win this fight. I had been trained, yes, for this moment however my muscles wouldn’t obey me; it was like my brain knew I was about to die and was trying to preserve every last bit of fight for something far greater. Would I need my strength once I was dead? I mean, if I couldn’t turn around now and face the music then what would come of me? There was no way I could protect myself, not against these gigantic things.

My legs ached with how far I had run. This stadium was too big and I was skeptical I would make it to the entrance.

I was out of breath by the time I reached it. I slowed down to a jog but ran into something invisible. It whirred and buzzed when I touched it as I tried to get to the other side. There was a freaking force field at the entrance! I couldn’t escape. I glanced around to the edges where the audience sat and noticed the twenty-foot field high up on the half-walls.

This was it.

I collapsed and there he was, standing in front of me. But he wasn’t looking at me. I could see his profile with his head in a hand, rubbing his eyes. Did he even see me flee? Did he see how pathetic I was at self-preservation?

I shouted his name but he couldn’t hear me. I screamed it over and over again but still, he did not turn.

I pounded on the field blocking my exit and could feel the vibration from the monsters behind me. They were getting closer and I had backed myself into a corner like dumb prey. I was easy pickings and my end was nigh.

I was going to die for entertainment. On some foreign planet. My body burned as my strength faded from me. I turned around to see my death and that’s when I felt a spark within me. Everything slowed around me: time, noise, movement. The vibrations nearly halted as a newfound confidence overtook me.

I rose up, charged forward.

“Be brave,” I heard from behind me.
