Survival is all anyone cares about in the refugee camp where Harmony has spent her entire life. Everyone wears themselves down just trying to stay alive. Harmony can't help but wonder what the point is when staying safe only inflicts misery.
Wanting more, Harmony risks helping an outsider in the hopes that the other refugees will realize there may be more outside of their bare existence. The hope she inspires comes at a price, however,angering Luther and putting her in danger of exile.
Zen refuses to let his father, Luther, hurt Harmony, but Pace isn't about to lose Harmony to Luther or Zen. In the midst of trying to keep herself out of Luther's hands, Harmony's heart is torn in two as she struggles to figure out which of the young men determined to save her she truly loves.
