Zenn Scarlett is a bright and occasionally a-little-too-smart-for-her-
17-year-old girl training hard to become an exoveterinarian. She
specializes in the treatment of exotic alien life forms, mostly large
and generally dangerous. Her novice year of training at the Ciscan
Cloister Exovet Clinic on Mars was going well - until there are a series
of inexplicable animal escapes from the school that Zenn finds herself
blamed for. As if this isn't enough to be dealing with, her father
vanishes under strange circumstances, and Zenn is worried that she has
started hearing the thoughts of the creatures around her...
With the help of Liam, a towner boy, and Hamish, an alien bug also training at the clinic, Zenn must try to find her father, rescue the animals and unravel the mystery of who is behind the attacks on the school. And all without failing her first year.
