Olivia has been on the run from the government of Cabal since the marriage ceremony. Finally settling in and finding herself a place to call home in Shadow, Olivia and Joshua prepare for the uprising that they and the rebel alliance have been planning for months.
With new abilities and special talents from Mindonsiphan, Olivia learns she can do more than most ordinary eighteen year olds. Learning both to hide and perfect her skills will be one of the biggest challenges she’ll be forced to face.
A constant rollercoaster of emotion and adventure await Olivia and Joshua as they embark on a journey to the rebel city of Torv, and what was once home, Genesis.
“He wants her thrown in the dumpster.” I grimaced as I approached the mattress. “Help me.” I gestured towards the body. “I can’t carry her on my own.” Even if I could, I wasn’t doing this alone.
“I’m not throwing her away like garbage!” Lisa crossed her arms. “Think of something else, Jacqueline.”
“We could grab some wood, wrap her body, and burn her.” I glanced around the small bedroom. It was mostly empty, except for the dresser against the wall. There were no trinkets, no signs of another life outside of Genesis. I couldn’t help but wonder if anyone missed her from back home.
“How are we going to do that without getting caught?” Lisa asked.
“I don’t know. Craynor will know we did it.” We were the ones that were told to throw the body away.
“We could find a place in the far end of the lot and bury her.”
Lisa frowned. “No, I like the idea of burning her body. We’d be making a statement. Anita would have approved.”
“If we get caught, we’ll be killed,” I reminded her. So much for staying out of trouble.
“He’s killing his servants. You don’t think that demands attention?” Lisa huffed. “I would have liked to know what I was getting involved in before I worked here.”
“It wasn’t like you had a choice.” I reminded her bitterly. That was what we were fighting for: our freedom to make choices. Whether they were right or wrong, they were our choices to make.
“Even so,” Lisa scoffed, “she deserves more than being thrown away like a piece of trash.”
Footsteps clomped through the hallway, just outside the door. “Well whatever we decide, we need to do it fast.”
