Genre: new-adult, science-fiction, action-adventure
Publisher: Curiosity Quills Press
Date of Publication: October 27, 2014
Cover Artist: Alexandria Thompson of Gothic Fate
Lieutenant Colonel Nik Zhukov is just like any other desensitized seventeen-year-old living in
the year 2076. At least he likes to think he is when he isn’t busy eliminating threats to national
security, breaking up terrorist organizations, and trying not to get blown up. It’s all in a normal
day’s work for one of the military’s top dogs, and he’s never disappointed. Never failed. Never

how morally corrupt his leaders are.
On the verge of promotion, Nik is dispatched to the underground city beneath the icy Seattle
tundra, his final mission handed down directly from The Council. It should have been a simple

Nik realizes too late that he’s broken the number one rule within his ranks; he’s allowed himself
to feel normal for the first time in his life. He might be able to turn the job around, become

Yet another first for Nik. It’s a mistake he pays for dearly when he learns The Council’s true
intentions for the city.
It’s never ‘just harmless fun’ when you’re a government dog, not when The Council holds the
leash. Nik knows there are some lines you can never come back from crossing, and he’s forced
to choose whose rules to play by. He races toward the invisible divide, aware he’ll be called
traitor by both his nation and by his friends. Aware that even the right choice can be deadly to
