She believes Amos Haugen is meant to help her, but the Marine is recuperating from a battle injury with bourbon and solitude. He refuses…until he figures out what she really is. Then the last shreds of honor compel him to take her into the world of urban humans, but Perpetua has figured out who he really is…a coward and traitor.

June 2017 Math isn’t my strongest skill set. However, I can solve this equation: The second half of 2016 ÷ 3 deaths + 4 funerals in 4 months = agony. You may doubt my addition, but I assure you it is accurate. My mother died in August. She lived in New York, but grew...read more
