Things would never be the same again... When death and destruction looms mercilessly in the form of an incurable virus, throwing all life into chaos and confusion, it becomes clear the future holds thing but danger and adversity. Hope struggles through this new life, facing choices and battling demons, some of which are just a little too close to home. She flees the city with her family to brave the hostile countryside, escaping civilisation only to encounter pure madness. When Hope's young son Raif is kidnapped by Deserters, children of the virus and bringers of death, she searches desperately for a reason to live, eventually finding her faith in love and the man who saved her, Dade. He takes her to a safe haven, a Community of survivors whose success depends on their continued isolation from the outside world. Dade teaches Hope that she must overcome the pain of loss if she is to move forward in her life. She must conquer her vulnerabilities to become strong, unbeatable... an essential lesson to learn when the world has become so cruel. But when the history of the formation of this Community is revealed, the past haunts its inhabitants with a vicious vengeance. A story of survival and differing agendas, of jealousy and trust, of loyalty and love. And as pain rears its ugly head yet again, tempered only by glimpses of happiness, Hope is left to deal with it, armed with the basis of three principles: With love we are unbeatable. In life we must find hope. For only through hope, can we have life!
