Kale Carson was barely fourteen when her mother married a self important man. He came from nowhere, the man she and her
brother called the General, and took them away from everything they'd ever known. When their mother retreated within
herself, the General filled their heads with fearful plans for the future. Then Kale found a friend, someone she could
confide in, and she felt she had a chance at a normal existence. Off on an adventure, it should have been the time of
her life--but betrayal and heartbreak waited around the corner. Trying to pick up the pieces, she forges on alone but
the General's plans include her and he's decided it's time to reclaim her.
