In the aftermath of a virus that has obliterated ninety-three percent of the population, Pollen McRae, a young woman plagued with a tragic past, finds herself scarred and abandoned in the wilderness, unable to remember the previous weeks. There she meets Marcus, a mysterious man with a similar plight. Together they are determined to escape a trio of bounty hunters and rescue Pollen’s niece, Evie from her imprisonment at the Crimson Survivor Refuge, a refugee camp which serves as a cover for a much more sinister plot.
Meanwhile, a renegade environmental organization is recruiting survivors for a mission that will change the course of human existence forever.
“I enjoyed this book because it wasn’t the stereotypical boy meets girl, boy falls for girl, the end. You really go on a rollercoaster with these people and feel for them.” by Kel Crist
“I started the book not knowing what to expect, but I finished the book excited, impatient for the next one to come out. I have never read the final paragraph of a story and been more sorry to have it end.” by Joe Hinojosa
After escaping captivity from the Crimson Survivor Refuge, where the survivors of a mysterious virus were held under the guise of protection, Pollen McRae, her niece, Evie, and Marcus Stygma live peacefully at a botanical research center, where scientists and engineers are building a shuttle to escape the dying planet and colonize its neighbor called A1D3. Pollen’s idyllic life is turned upside down when Glenn, her ex-fiance and former Crimson Enforcer, bursts into the COPS facility. She finds herself torn between her feelings for Marcus and her past with Glenn when a new development arises. There is a spy among them. Plans and components for the shuttle have been stolen and all signs point to Glenn, the newcomer. But before he can be banished Glenn reveals to Pollen that a mysterious prisoner is still being held captive in the solitary level at Crimson. Determined to rescue him, she must find a way back. But how many lives will she put at risk?
“Wonderfully written, love the characters, great storyline. I can’t wait for the next one to come out!” by Kim Wiebe
“It is very well written, the story flows smoothly and I could relate to the characters. They seem real and not contrived, someone you care what happens to them.” by Connie Taylor
Behind every powerful organization there lies a weakness, concealed in greed and deception.
Inside every young mother there lies a ticking time bomb of indomitable strength.
When 21-year-old Pollen McRae escaped Crimson Survivor Refuge for the third time, she hoped it would be her first and last confrontation with the Trinity, the powerful trio who released the virus that destroyed her world. But now they have captured Pollen’s niece, Evie, in order to extract a portion of her DNA that could change the outcome of human existence. And they are willing to trade her . . . for Pollen and her unborn baby.
Meanwhile, the Trinity will stop at nothing to enact vengeance on the residents of Ceborec for Pollen’s escape and the theft of classified documents. Lives will be lost. Hearts will be broken. A community will be destroyed.
How far will Pollen go to keep her family safe?
“Interesting and so very entertaining! Well written and beautifully executed. A fantastic and original series! I loved it all!” by Michelle
“This book blends the dystopian feelings, with a bit of an environmental spin, and really gives you everything you expect from a strong YA dystopian trilogy. It’s got some relationships, drama, action, suspense, and a good amount of “who-dun-it”. I was hooked, and reading until the very last page.” by Cianna Sunshine & Mountains Book Reviews
