Ashes Come Dawn (Wasteland #1)
18-year-old Jericho has one eye, no family, and a large score to settle.
Born in the deserts of Al-Hassad, Jericho knows the land like the back of her hand and the dangers that lie in it. After her tribe is massacred as a child by the deadly Chiroptera, flesh-eating humans that turn to monsters when sunlight hits their skin, she is brought into the civilized City of Jericho. Now, with revenge on her lips, she races the desert to bring supplies from Walled City to Walled City, killing as many Chiroptera as she can on her way.
When her team is ambushed by Chiroptera and Saskia, the beautiful Inner-Rim girl that drives Jericho mad, is critically injured while transporting medicine to save the City of Jericho from a deadly epidemic, Jericho finds herself stranded with the venom of her sworn enemies coursing through her veins. Bitten and marked, both girls are at the mercy of the Chiroptera and their leader, Riga, who strikes a deal with Jericho--her transformation in exchange for the delivery and Saskia's freedom.
To save her City, Jericho must become the monster she loathes. As the sunlight becomes poison to her skin, she must decide whether revenge is worth all that she knows turning to ashes come dawn.
