    Summary

    This is the last place she ever thought she’d end up.

    When work dries up on Jakku, a desperate Rey enlists with Galactech-- a tech company who will hire anyone with the right skills, and work for anyone for the right price. Now trapped onboard the Finalizer, Rey is both horrified and fascinated by the dark tales she hears about the leader of the Knights of Ren and the mysterious Force he controls.

    But, when a chance encounter awakens a power within her she has never known, it may just be Kylo Ren’s fascination with her that becomes her undoing.

    Summary

    “You live in a boat?” His gaze had a physical force Rey found hard to describe. He stared at her, really stared at her, as if he could look inside and peer into her thoughts. Rey had made it her business to be as invisible as possible—invisible meant you wouldn’t be picked on, or robbed, or harassed. His full attention was like standing in the only spot of sunlight in a dark ocean for miles around.

    “It’s none of your business where I live.” Rey folded her arms, skin prickling.

    There was a long moment of silence broken by the waves crashing against the shore.

    “My name is Ben. Who are you?” The words were soft in a way he hadn’t been the entire time she’d known him. But a spark of intuition, the same intuition that told her a storm was coming on the wings of a slight breeze, told her that the answer would be important—the future would hinge on what she said.

    Inexplicably, Rey panicked. “Take your clothes off.”

     

    When Rey finally set out to find her parents in the innumerable islands of the Jakku Archipelago, the last thing she expected was a mysterious stranger to drop out of the sky with his story of hidden treasures and secret wonders.

    Summary

    “It was foolish of you to come here,” he says. “You won’t escape this time.”

    Rey looks at him, at the Stormtroopers, at the combat walkers. She gives the illusion of thinking it over, and then says, “You’re right."

    She presents her wrists to him. “I surrender myself to the authority of the First Order.”

    --

    Three years after the Battle of Crait, Rey, Resistance hero and teacher to a budding new Jedi Order, once again delivers herself into the hands of the enemy. To provide cover for a maneuver that could deal a serious blow to the First Order, she must gamble with the thing she knows its Supreme Leader wants most: herself.
