It feels like all Ember Miller has ever known is war. After the major cities were destroyed, the government began enforcing the Moral Statutes – the faith-based regulations governing almost every aspect of Ember’s daily life. She and her mom know how to get what they need and pass the random inspections of their home made Federal Bureau of Reformation, but despite their low profile the unthinkable happens: Ember’s mother is arrested for violating Article 5 of the Moral Statutes by Chase Jennings, the only boy Ember has ever loved.
Now Ember is on the run, desperate to find her mother. She is forced to place her trust in her betrayer, but it’s going to take a lot more than crossing over to the wrong side of the law for Chase to win back Ember’s trust and her heart – this time, if they get caught, they face a fate far worse than prison.
