The battle for the wastelands continues as Dani and Kate struggle to find common ground.

As White River burns, Danielle Clark wants revenge. She rejoins the Resistance, only this time, her friends are by her side. With Simon now in pursuit and her relationship with William wavering, her only hope to stay one step ahead of the fight is to trust her once sworn enemy and the general’s daughter, Katelyn Turner.

Back within the ranks of the National Armed Forces, Kate struggles to understand the push for power and dominance over the wastelands. Her time spent as a prisoner in White River has left her conflicted about her command, and her growing attraction for Dani has awakened a desperate need to protect her from a new lethal force introduced by the general.

Through it all, Danielle and Kate can’t seem to stay away from each other even as the war over the Badlands tests their loyalty to each other and to their people.
