What is it about?
(Blurb from GoodReads)
New York Times bestselling author, Scarlett Dawn, has created a fresh and magical new adventure for romance and paranormal lovers alike. Shifters rule the world through corporations after the humans all but destroyed Earth. It’s too bad humans are still oblivious. They have no clue terrifying beasts run their broken world.
And then along came a human. A beautiful and klutzy human.
She’s the trigger the shifters have been waiting for…
But beware of the soul-sucking darkness soon to follow.

Dystopian take on shifters
Shifters May rule in this dystopian universe, but the humans don’t know it…. yet.
But the shifters want, actually need, the human race to survive – so they take control when mankind destroys its population via war and greed, forming corporations and forces in an effort to lead the lost race back from the brink of extinction.
It works – and now the world is slowly rebuilding. Yet the shifters still need the humans, and we get to see first hand why when one snarky and brave redhead falls for her father’s political and personal enemy.
Fun, intense and kinda engrossing, this book kicks off a series set in an intriguing world.
