In a universe where the Time Lords survived the Last Great Time War, Rose Tyler lives on an Earth ruled by the alien race. For centuries, the Time Lords have been controlling humanity, settling down on the planet and others like it in an effort to suppress any species that could ever potentially rise against them. Compared to what it should have been, life on Earth isn’t half-bad: there’s still the chippies open at two in the morning, the minimum-wage jobs in the shop, and the bumper-to-bumper noon day traffic. However, the Guard overseeing humanity at every moment, the rules carried out with an iron-fist, and the advanced alien technology might be a sign that not all is well. Nevertheless, Rose has lived nineteen years under the Time Lords’ watchful eyes, obeying the laws set before her without a second thought.
When she unknowingly becomes part of a secret revolution intent on overthrowing the Time Lords, Rose is forced to renounce her parents and go on the run. Becoming a fugitive in the midst of a vengeful race leaves her with only two option: fight or be killed. However, after a particularly nasty run-in with the Guard, she is rescued by a member of the High Council, The Lord Doctor. Left with a regenerating Time Lord and a bounty on her head, Rose must decide where her loyalty truly lies.
With her people or her heart.
