On the run from the Earth government and military forces, wanted former terrorist Maddy Hawthorn seeks a new life on Mars. When she discovers plans for another terrorist attack, her only hope to prevent a global catastrophe is to seek the help of other insurgents.

But everyone wants her dead, including the people she is trying to save.

With the help of a runaway Elite teenager and a band of renegade slaves, Maddy fights to save the very government system she despises.

Nothing lasts forever.

Although it alludes to events in the previous Maddy Hawthorn book, "Days of Iron", this is a separate story and is designed to be read and understood independently.

Unexpected Love

My childhood life was not your ordinary one. In fact, it could hardly seem the life of any child. Or adult. You see, my youthful days weren't filled with toys and loving parents. The were filled with traveling. Time traveling....Annelise Smith is an eighteen-year-old girl who lives in Tokyo, Japan. She grew up in the orphanage at a very young age, and was adopted at the age of twelve by a young man- who she despises greatly-as he discovered she could time travel. For the next six years he paid her to discover information about other significant businesses with this talent, until he proposes to her. What will her decision be, as she apposes him so? And farther down to the central square of Tokyo, Annelise discovers a new friend, Kho Lin Jazna. What will happen when they meet someone together in the future, the one and only Choi Minho, choreographer and rapper for the boyband Shinee? Join Annelise, Jazna, Wun Hu Jang, and Minho on this exciting adventure, and see what their 'future' holds...----------This story is my own original work, but has been placed under the category of fanfiction because I have cast Choi Minho as a character in this book. All happenings (obviously since time travel isn't your ordinary way to hop around) have been created by me. Also, the names for Kho Lin Jinki and Kho Lin Jazna (which would really be Jasnah Kholin) are originally names created by Brandon Sanderson in his Stormlight Archive series. I borrowed the names and changed the spelling, but all credits are rights go to Brandon Sanderson. Also, Kho Lin Jinki was inspired by Lee Jinki, or Key from SHINee, so all rights go to Key. Lastly, I thank you all for reading my book, and for @Jasnah04 (who Jazna is inspired by) for helping me come up with ideas.
