When environmental collapse forces the Job Creators to retreat to sealed domes, those left behind have two choices: fight for survival or perish.
Seventeen-year-old Alessandro has managed to support himself and his seven-year-old brother by digging scrap from derelict buildings, but when the Creators flee, taking all semblance of law and order with them, he's forced to go to work for a crime lord in exchange for protection. Afraid of what she has in store for his brother, Alessandro is desperate to find a way out of her web.
Born seventeen years ago on a Creator's farming collective, Valeria has never known anything other than a life of toil under the relentless sun. Crop yields are dwindling with each passing year, begging the question of which lives will be prioritized when there isn't enough food to go around.
Yet Valeria's fears are nothing compared to the aftermath of the Creators abandoning her collective. In this now lawless world, farmers must become warriors to defend their own. Can she live with the decisions her new reality will force her to make?

About the Author
Nicole has progressed from scribbling in notebooks to banging on keyboards, but she's never managed to stop daydreaming at inappropriate moments.
When not answering the demands of her characters, Nicole can often be found curled up with a good book or spending far too many hours acting the hero in whatever video game is her obsession of the moment.
One of Nicole's other great passions is travel. She loves being married to a native Belgian, both because she likes the idea of being "The American" and because it gives her plenty of excuses to visit Europe-that wondrous land of coffee, chocolate, pastry-as often as possible.
Michigan born and raised, Nicole lives there with her honorary Michigander/Belgian husband and her two children.
