For six months of darkness at the top of the world, Haelu lives amongst the villagers of Arbalest. Like every Night Twin before her, Haelu is a monster, destined for sacrifice. Unlike every Night Twin before her, Haelu dreams of a way out. Together with a candlemaker from a broken home, she will learn to transcend the role that Arbalest has laid out for her.
In 2004, the world ended. Technology failed, disease reigned, and humanity fell–all except for a City in a Place. There, in a hidden civilization of scientists, doctors, and engineers, life as we know it continued…and everyone else wants what they have. The City will stand or fall based on the choices of a wandering survivor as she uncovers a history with the City she never knew she had. Join Colbey as she searches for her lost fiance and finds more than she ever bargained for. Rated R for violence and profanity.
