In a world where Hitler won the The War, and perfection is constantly sought, Ellyssa has broken free from her austere life and has found another meaning for her existence.

Family, friendship, and love.    

But her happiness is short-lived. Ellyssa finds herself on the run again. Having destroyed her father's base of research and operations, she, Rein and Woody return to the resistance's cavern only to find that their friends have been slaughtered or captured and sent to a concentration camp. 

Now not only must they find the remaining members of their group, but Ellyssa discovers that her father’s work didn’t die with him, but lives on in her siblings, Aalexis and Xaver, and they are determined to complete his unfinished dream. Even if that means killing her in the process.

J.L. Spelbring of Huntington, TX J.L. Spelbring lives in Texas, where she wanders out in the middle of the night to look at the big and bright stars. Besides knocking imaginary bad guys in the head with a keyboard, she enjoys being swept away between the pages of a book, running amuck inside in her own head, pretending she is into running, and hanging out with her kids, who are way too cool for her.
