She doesn't believe she needs help, and she doesn't even know that Guardians exist - until Brodie saves her life. Unaccustomed to depending on anyone for anything, Tasha now finds herself embroiled in deadly game where the ultimate goal is a fate far worse than any nightmare. The only person she can trust is Brodie to guide her through a maze of danger and deception, lies and treachery, friends and enemies, until they reach safe harbor. If they reach safe harbor.
