Summary:
Deuce struggles for respect in a new topside town where she is treated like a child and avoided by Fade, a situation that compels her to volunteer for patrol duty and protect topside citizens from an unexpected upsurge in Freak activity -- Source other than Library of Congress.

Excerpt/First Sentence(s):
I woke to the cold kiss of steel on my throat.

Though I'd grown accustomed to sleeping safely since our arrival in Salvation two months ago, I'd lost none of my edge. Before my attacker realized I was awake, I knocked the knife away and tumbled him over my head. While Stalker recovered, I rolled to my feet and scowled. Momma Oaks would skin us both if she caught him in my room. People took reputations seriously, and mine was already bruised, due to my insistence on being myself.

"Good work, dove." Stalker's grin flashed in the moonlight.

"What are you doing here?" It was the middle of the night, but he loved his little tests.

"We've got incoming. I heard the second bell."

My ire cooled. He wasn't just checking my reflexes in spite of our precarious situation. Belonging to no one, we had to make sure we didn't wear out our welcome or anger the townsfolk by flouting their rules. Most seemed designed to discourage unauthorized breeding, and they didn't like it when I went off to spar with Stalker. It hadn't taken me long to figure that I wasn't a normal girl—at least by Salvation standards. So we trained in secret these days, no daylight matches.

Publisher Description:
Deuce's whole world has changed. Down below, she was considered an adult. Now, topside in a town called Salvation, she's a brat in need of training in the eyes of the townsfolk. She doesn't fit in with the other girls: Deuce only knows how to fight.

To make matters worse, her Hunter partner, Fade, keeps Deuce at a distance. Her feelings for Fade haven't changed, but he seems not to want her around anymore. Confused and lonely, she starts looking for a way out.

Deuce signs up to serve in the summer patrols—those who make sure the planters can work the fields without danger. It should be routine, but things have been changing on the surface, just as they did below ground. The Freaks have grown smarter. They're watching. Waiting. Planning. The monsters don't intend to let Salvation survive, and it may take a girl like Deuce to turn back the tide.
