Sequel to the Posleen series about a future alien invasion of Earth.
"For as long as Cally O'Neal could remember, she had lived in danger. While her father was fighting the invading Posteen she had been raised by her grandfather, practically on the front-lines of a war that had erased five billion humans from the earth. In the final stages she had officially 'died' and been recruited into the Bane Sidhe, a group of underground warriors dedicated to breaking the stranglehold of the elf-like Darhel.
For forty years she has led a life of unremittent, unrecognized, unhallowed slaughter, wearing a constant stream of disguises, sending humans who support the Darhel off to meet their Maker. Now, on the most important mission of her career, at odds with her superiors, hunting a mole that could destroy her at any moment, and inexorably falling in love with the enemy, for the first time she has to wonder if it's worth it. If being a dragon is the best way to fight the dragon. And if there will be a morning after for the little girl who liked to play with guns and swim with the dolphins. Cally had been fighting for the future of the human race, but now she is in a war for survival: the survival of her soul."; 7¾" - 9¾" Tall
