In an alternate reality, post-apocolyptic-like London is ruled by a tyrant, Strazier, who kills and destroys all who stand in his way. In this disparing world, Kari, an 18 year old girl seperated from her family and struggling day-to-day to survive, meets the resistance to the emperor: a haphazard group called "The Recovery" which includes five young lads, perhaps bearing the skills, comradeship, and drive to retake their country and save this world. She quickly joins their ranks, discovering her own archery ability under their care and joins them in their endeavors to save the people. Along the way she will form bonds with Louis, Liam, Niall, and Zayn but little does she know how heavily she will fall for the one who seems to like her presence among them the least; Harry. The seemingly emotionally detatched boy may come around after all and not only save humanity, but himself and her.
