South Pole Station, Antarctica aka Frozen Hell aka the Butt Crack of the World. Seventeen-year-old Ionia Sonberg longs to be free of her bland, boring, stuck-on-blah life. With her sexy, companion droid, Den, she stows away on a cargo plane to find her destiny. But just as she reaches her destination, a terrorist attack forces Ionia to choose between freedom and family loyalty. Together they must travel over Earth’s harshest terrain to uncover a secret that may save or destroy them both.
Z43217, commonly known as Zee, is defective. She has all the skills of a companion droid, and all the military expertise of a soldier. Everything she needs to become a proper spy, yet she keeps failing at the most simple task of passing for human. All she wants is to be chosen and make her Sifu proud.
On her first mission, Zee befriends a charming boy named Kuta. Soon she realizes that Kuta’s life is danger and only she can save him.
Zee has a mission to complete, an identity to keep secret, and a home to save, but Kuta is the first person to treat her like a real girl. She must decide if she will follow protocol or if she will follow her heart.
