In a world where women are imprisoned in order to breed and are taught to fear men, fourteen year old Era discovers that she is barren, and is to be Disposed. Desperate not to die, Era does the unthinkable: she leaves the prison where the women are kept. She knows she must hide, as she is being hunted, but the last thing she expects is to meet handsome, undersanding Hunter. Worse yet, she thinks she might be falling for him. But she must choose between saving her friends or love, and no matter how hard you run, the wave always catches up.
