Nicole Hammond was just trying to survive on the streets of Philadelphia, then she and her partner Bungie were abducted by a race of mysterious moth-like aliens and taken to a strange ship called the Fyrantha.
Now she is a Sibyl, a special human that has the ability to communicate with the aliens and their ship, and no one is happy.
