"As the heirs to opposing sides in a warring city, Kate Harker and Augustus Flynn should never have met. A Romeo and Juliet-esque fantasy about the difference between good and evil and the blurry gray area in between"-- Provided by publisher.
There|s no such thing as safe in a city at war, a city overrun with monsters. All Kate wants is to be as ruthless as her father, who lets the monsters roam free and makes the humans pay for his protection. All August wants is to be human, as good-hearted as his own father, to play a bigger role in protecting the innocent-- but he|s one of the monsters. With the future of their home at stake, Kate and Augustus are the heirs to opposing sides, and should never have met. Now they're the only two who can do something to save the city.
