Convergent by Brenda Hiatt
The middle of nowhere keeps getting more interesting!
The little town of Jewel, Indiana, has seen a lot of changes over the past year, to include a dozen new students at Jewel High who all happen to be Martians, not that any of the other students realize that…yet. The locals are getting more and more suspicious of the athletically gifted and attractive newcomers who all seem to have a connection to NuAgra. What’s really going on out there anyway?
Marsha, known at school as M and to the Martian people as Sovereign Emileia, is already stretched to her limit trying to keep her people and their secret safe. Now she learns of a devastating new weapon that could destroy the whole town of Jewel, Indiana, including its fledgling Martian government center disguised as an agricultural research company.
Fortunately, she doesn’t have to face this menace alone. Along with her soulmate Rigel, she now has two other newly-bonded couples by her side. Maybe, if they work together, there’s a chance their bonds of love and friendship can somehow avert the looming threat…before it’s too late.
