From New York Times bestselling author Calinda B, comes a dystopian tale of ruthless struggle and triumph.For two long terrifying years, Sakhi Borren, and her beloved brother Reve, are headed to live at The Complex. An enclosed metal and concrete manufactured world on the barren planet Lorn, the Complex is some government’s version of a good idea. Its sole purpose is to “heal the rifts between warring races” -- a joke if ever Sakhi heard one. If she and her brother can survive to the end, they’ll leave, far richer. In the meantime, all they can look forward to is co-existing with criminals and the scumbags known as Metas. She’s scared of Metas. Her brother loathes them.Strict rules and “guidelines” govern their every waking hour. Harsh punishment awaits all who violate the rules. It’s a bleak, bleary, mind-numbing existence. A telepathic dreamer, Sakhi does her best to get along and not make waves, working alongside her charming yet terrifying boss, Thrasyllus Blüthe, a decorated war hero. She dreads each night, where she’ll wade through the hopes and fears of others, caught in their dream-state. It seems she can only escape one world to be entrenched in another. But soon its evident someone is stalking her in her dreams. It could be any number of Metas she works with. It could be her boss. But she suspects its someone far more deadly—her worst nightmare and her greatest enemy—the Meta assigned as her parole officer. He wants her eradicated—only after he seduces her. Surviving until its over is no longer her only option. She needs to deal with what’s right in front of her face—her present. With no one to turn to, she leans on her brother for strength and comfort. But he might have a few secret plans of his own that leave her with no recourse but to rely on her own faltering strength.
