Gabe Fuentes is in a race against time--and aliens--in this intergalactic sequel to Ambassador , which Booklist called "an exciting sci-fi adventure, perceptively exploring what it means to be alien," from National Book Award winner William Alexander. When we last left Earth's Ambassador, Gabe Fuentes, he was stranded on the moon. And when he's rescued by Kaen, another Ambassador, things don't get better: It turns out that the Outlast-- a race of aliens that has been systematically wiping out all other creatures--are coming. And they've set their sights on Earth. Enter Nadia. She was Earth's Ambassador before Gabe, but left her post in order to stop the Outlast. Nadia has discovered that the Outlast can conquer worlds by travelling fast through lanes created by the mysterious Machinae. No one has communicated with the Machinae in centuries, but Nadia is determined to try, and Gabe and Kaen want to help her. But the three Ambassadors don't know that the Outlast have discovered what they are doing, and have sent assassins to track them down. As Nadia heads deeper into space to find the Machinae, Gabe and Kaen return to Earth, where Gabe is trying to find another type of alien--his father, who was deported to Mexico, and who Gabe is desperate to bring home. From a detention center in the center of the Arizona desert to the Embassy in the center of the galaxy, the three Ambassadors race against time to save their worlds in this exciting, funny, mind-bending adventure.

display_description Gabe Fuentes has become Earth's ambassador, but he is not on Earth nor on the moon. He is traveling deep into space with the alien ambassador Kaen, who looks completely human, as well as with Nadia, the human ambassador from forty years ago who hasn't seemed to have aged at all. Nadia has spent decades studying the Outlast, an evil alien species determined to wipe out all civilization other than their own. If the three ambassadors cannot work together quickly, then Earth's fate and the Outlast's victory seem certain.
