Nuclear war destroyed the earth, but Harper’s world was perfect until she met Eli Parker.
Harper was the best developer in her year. She should have been a shoo-in for a cushy job in Systems. Instead she was drafted into Recon — kicking and screaming onto Eli’s squad.

Harper Riley should be no different, but she’s gotten under Eli’s skin. She’s started asking lots of questions — dangerous questions with no good answers.
Eli wants to save her despite his better judgment. But can Eli save her from herself?
