This story rakes readers to a world were DNA means everything. Far in the future where our planet may not even exist anymore an evil man has begun his dark intentions and is more than ready to kill any who oppose him.
I found this to be an intriguing story that pulled you in right from the start. There is action alongside the romance. I enjoyed seeing not only the reconnection of Bud and Julianna but the connections that many of the other characters have. Friendship and love are strong between the bands of rebels in this story. They fight and love hard. Trust is hard and must be earned. Julianna and Bud have some surprises in store for them. The two must fight and find their way back to love. Their relationship contains strong sexual content and BDSM that brings them closer and binds them together in a special way. I enjoyed watching love find its way and the fight it takes to keep it.
