If Emily and Tom are to survive, they need to help each other. Will Tom accept her? Or will the relationship crumble?
Crowley looked at the girl in front of him. She was so young, so...What was it? Pretty. Yet she always worked hard, sometimes even when she was sick, and always harder than some of of the older, more experienced Rangers. Which is why he had chosen her for a very important assignment.
