When Mallory met Edmund…
Mallory of Settlement 20 is a rare fertile female in a world made sterile by global war and ecological cataclysm.
When she’s 13 years old, she’s sent to Red City, an environmentally clean enclave where she will be safe. On her way, she meets Edmund, a prince who will one day bid on her services.
A kind gesture by Edmund sparks Mal’s adolescent crush, but friendship with princes is forbidden by law.
Blue Amber is the extended prologue to Bleeder, a postapocalyptic paranormal romance, the first novel in the Afterworld series.
