The year is 2033 and the world hovers on the edge of explosion as unexplained crop deaths lead to severe global food shortages. In the United States, the Sickness is taking lives slowly, creeping its way into every family. Fi Kelly has already faced the Sickness in her own family, toughening her beyond her years. But a shocking confession from her dying father will push her toughness to its absolute limits. Saddled with an impossible secret and the mission of saving her little sister, Fi sets out to transform herself into the warrior that she must become to survive the coming collapse. Along the way, she will discover that evil can be accidental and that love can be intentional.

And on to the excerpt!
Asher laughed and she shot him a confused look. “After all you’ve been through, you’re worried about the polar bears in the City.” He tilted his head, peering at her in the dim light. “You know, that compassion is actually what makes you a skilled fighter.”
Fi felt herself blush, embarrassed at the compliment. She ducked her head.
“I saw you,” he said, “you always parried rather than attacked, given the choice. I see that your strategy is to lock them up or wear them down. Always avoiding the violence, the kill. Yet you can kill if you must,” he nodded toward Sean, “to save your Family.” Asher inclined his head in small bow. “I’m honored to have fought with you.”
Fi was shocked. “But you had to save me! You had to save both of us!”
He laughed. “Well I’ve been training for this fight all my life,” he said, patting his sword lying. “I’m assuming you have had less than a year.”
Fi nodded, unsure exactly why she was telling Asher so much about herself.
“Besides,” he teased, “I’m pretty sure you’d have had Sid’s number even if I hadn’t come along, am I right?” He held his right hand up for a high-five and she grudgingly reached her hand out and slapped his.
“Oh yeah,” he said, and Fi started to laugh out loud and quickly covered her mouth with her hand. She glanced over at Sean, but he was still snoring. “Seriously,” Asher whispered, “You are pretty badass. It’s a good thing you’re little or I would be afraid of you.”
She blushed again, feeling pleased and confused at the same time. Why was she blushing every five minutes?
