Expect edge-of-your-seat dystopian drama in book 3 of Grace Hamilton's post-apocalyptic series.
The time has come to pick a side and choose between bad or worse.
Gathered on the shores of the Pasqualee vineyard island, Elna and a small group of EMP-attack survivors are anticipating a military ambush. From a distance, armed soldiers are attempting to cross the drawbridges that connect their safe retreat to the grim horrors of the new world on the mainland.
What they don't yet realize is that this uninvited group of fighters is under attack themselves – from the dangerous paramilitary unit led by Elna's rogue ex-boyfriend. When the battle-worn Marines finally make the crossing, they ask more questions than they're willing to answer, leaving the island inhabitants questioning whether they can trust the unwelcome visitors.
Until their true purpose is uncovered… and Elna and her father discover that their island is hiding more secrets than they could ever have imagined.
As they come to terms with the revelations about their home, a new band of mercenaries descends upon them with the sole purpose of destroying their vineyard's secret, so that chaos can rein free.
Now the fight is no longer about the endurance of just the Pasqualee group. Elna, along with faithful Malin and the original survivors, must protect the island. The future of America depends on it.
