It’s been two months since the blowout with President Vise.
The Valley is rebuilding and elections have been planned, but things are about to change when a new group of refugees arrives seeking the cure. They’ve brought with them someone Anyon never thought he’d see again, but he’s not the only one who’s surprised.
While Anyon sorts out the new arrivals, Malachi’s loyalty will be tested when Dax and Raven, old friends from his time on the streets, show up baring secrets he’s tried hard to keep hidden. He’s never shared that part of his past with anyone, and finds himself going along with Dax to prevent anyone, especially Sera, from learning what they did on the streets to survive.
But how far will he go to keep his past hidden?
Things take a turn for the worst when Dax and Raven pit Malachi against his friends. Will Sera’s love be enough to prevent him from sliding back into his dark past, a past that’s more brutal than even she can imagine?
