Learn it the easy way, or the hard way. You don’t mess with New York City.
The orphan, saved from the Central Park Shanties by a powerful man determined to rebuild New York City after a devastating war and an aftermath that might be considered even worse.
The best friend, whose brilliance is matched only by his devotion to her–and his poor health, a souvenir from their life on the streets.
The heir to it all, who she was trained to protect until a shot shatters everything she thought she knew.
The once unbreakable city on the brink of destruction, or the life she once thought she knew? Will the rabbit hole of misconception and inescapable truth overwhelm her ability to save them both?
Or will her destiny as a Keeper of the Flame force her to choose?
The apocalypse is coming. And mere survival may not be enough.
