DISCONTINUED Dauntless is hard to survive, regardless if you're good at fighting or not. For Dove, it seems like an impossible task, until she gets trained by Eric, the leader who seems to be indescribably cruel and heartless. With these little acts of kindness, Dove immediately knows there's something more to him than people think. She just hopes Eric is willing to show her that side. The soft side.
