For her entire life, Emery Corlette had been fighting. Ever since the death of her father and her mother's absence, Emery had been fighting to take care of her sister, Abigail. When she was seven, her father's best friend came to her with a proposition: he would teach her how to fight and make money. Emery never wanted to live that kind of life, but she did what she had to so that her sister would be safe. Emery made a promise to her sister, however, that, as soon as Emery turned eighteen, the two would leave New York and start fresh somewhere else. It was that thought alone that got Emery through the dark life of fighting.
With her eighteenth birthday fast approaching, Emery had a lot of loose ends to tie up and fights to win. Final preparations had to be made, and there were fights to be won. Will Emery be able to stop fighting and start running, or will her past always haunt her?
I can't write a summary to save my life, but I hope you guys will give this book a chance. You, hopefully, won't regret it.
