The city has become a warzone. Charlie and her companions must survive the gangs and corrupt government agents that are out to stake their claims on the nation’s riches. Should she try and flee to the countryside, with each neighborhood a potential trap and every house a threat? Or should she stay and fight the building tyranny?
Dwindling food supplies and the daily risks of capture are taking its toll. Mistakes are fatal, and the exhaustion that comes with living under constant danger is wearing them down.
Betrayal, pain and death are the norm. Who can they turn to when everyone is the enemy? Charlie’s world is about to change, and decisions that she and the other’s make will lead to life or condemn them to a quick and merciless death.
