When she crosses paths with a mysterious soldier, Lucas, of the royal family, something strikes her as odd about him, but what?

But not everyone is afflicted with what’s spreading like a deadly disease. However, for those like Carrie and her immediate family, being immune has a deadly price of its own— one that soon reveals a far more sinister plan.
