The first book in a brilliant new paranormal series called "electrifying...brilliantly conceived and executed" (Library Journal) by Colleen Gleason, writing as Joss Ware. A man with no future . . . When Dr. Elliott Drake wakes from a mysterious fifty-year sleep, the world as he knew it is gone. Cities are now desolate, and civilization is controlled by deadly immortals. Stranger still is Elliott's extraordinary new "gift"--he has the power to heal, but it comes with fatal consequences. A woman with a past . . . Jade barely escaped the immortals and is now hell-bent on revenge. She trusts no one . . . until Elliott. His piercing gaze and tempting touch shatter her defenses, but the handsome doctor seems to have dangerous secrets of his own. Is it safe to trust him with her heart? If they are to survive in this dark new world, Jade and Elliott must work together to fight the forces that take them beyond danger. Beyond desire.

After reading it, I am sorry I waited for so long.I don’t read many post apocalyptic novels, but I liked this one. Ms Ware has created an intrested world. The cause of the post apocalypse f...
I was bored reading this book. I don't know if it was just a wrong time kind of thing or if it's maybe just not something I'd be interested in.
Great dystopian romance for those sick of the usual PNR. Almost zombie-like critters coming out at night and in dark places gives it a nice creep/horror factor. Really enjoyed it, and will continue the series.
