What if everyone just stopped caring? What sort of world would we create for future generations?
Letha and Nathan were best friends just as were their mothers before them. Soon, however, two dictators overthrow the city, take the children captive, kill the opposing parents and then brainwash, train, and sculpt these children into soldiers. At first, Letha rejects the new life she leads, staying strong only to protect those younger than her. She is then given the ultimate task: kill Nathan; if she does not, everyone, including herself, will die.
In a world where no one cares, Letha struggles against herself to do the right thing. Ultimately, she has to make a choice, save herself or drown in the codependency of one young boy who has become brainwashed and hardened into the dictator’s web. No matter what choice she makes, she will have to lose someone that she loves.

About the Author
Lotus is merely the pen name for a dreamer--a writer who can't keep her head out of the clouds. Her favorite saying? "Dreams are what keep us clouded." And, it's true. Since childhood, Lotus has spent most of her waking hours devoted to scribbling stories (over 50 books). She isn't like you and me. Even her air is different for she "breathes novels". The world she belongs to is nothing like this one. It is a place where only the eccentric venture. And, of course a few brave readers... "There is no law but that with which we put upon ourselves," Lotus sighs, "and the laws to which we allow others to set for us." "Don't be afraid of who or what you are. Embrace it. For the stranger you are, the better the story."
