I thought I was safe.
I FOUGHT TO KEEP THEM ALIVE.
I thought I was good.
THERE WAS NO GOOD LEFT HERE.
I thought I was just a girl.
I WAS MORE THAN JUST A MAN.
I didn’t see it coming.
I SHOULD HAVE SEEN IT COMING.
Destiny had brought us together.
HISTORY WOULD TEAR US APART.
Twenty-first century London – daytime
Freedom is non-existent.
Self-expression is confined to sunlight hours.
Happiness is on a schedule.
Safety is a temporary fixture.
Twenty-first century London – nighttime.
Blood cascades over cobbled stones.
Criminals emerge from the shadows.
The depraved, the deviant, the morally corrupt, own the streets.
Happiness comes in the form of final breaths.
Safety is found in the shrills of death.
A love story emerges inside the barricades.
A story played out many times before…
But not like this.
It’s evolution of tradition.
It’s insanity fighting to break the cycle.
It’s history’s repetition with hope for a better outcome.
Can love survive in a drowning capital?
What if the good guys aren’t the good guys?
What if the heroes have become the villains?
Trixie Ashford has been living a lie.
Elias Blackwood has been creating it.
It is their destiny to meet.
It will be their downfall to fall in love…
