Tame the Skies
Caro Aubuchon runs an illegal repair shop out of her mother's apartment, which is the least of her worries when an unfamiliar alien crashlands on her roof.
Kadea comes from the city beyond a fog that covers their terraformed planet, a myth-enshrouded place that nobody believes to be real. Even more peculiarly, he demands to talk to a relative of Caro's late scientist father, who he claims ended up on the other side of the fog. Alive. Using the likelihood of seeing her father again as leverage, Kadea convinces Caro to travel to the city beyond the fog with him.
There, Caro discovers that Kadea deceived them, leaving out that his city is plagued by a mind-controlling monster with an army of corpses that her father has been studying. And if Caro doesn't decipher her father's research - the whole planet will be at the creature's mercy.
