Someone wants Daniel Reed dead.
And they would have succeeded, if not for Casey Bowman - a mortal girl from the city across the wastelands, where his kind is feared and hated.
She risks everything to save his life, and he is drawn to her courage, her generous heart. But the enemy who would use his sacrifice as a means to wipe out the mortals is still a threat. One that could cost them everything.
Will their feelings for each other change the world they know, or tear it apart?
This is a standalone, with an HEA.
