Katia wasn’t born with her ‘gift’. It was genetically engineered by a madman who once proclaimed to be her father, yet destroyed her for ‘The Greater Good’. After years of abuse and torture, after fighting to complying against her father’s atrocities, after escape and re-capture, and now drawing her dying breath Katia does what she has refused to do—use her gift—to destroy the lab that has been her living hell.

Only she doesn’t die. And she doesn’t escape. She wakes into a new world, weak and disoriented, where nothing makes sense. She is told by Doctor Julius Freeman that she has been found deep underground and has been in an induced coma for over one hundred years. As handsome and as kind as he is, she doesn’t trust him. Doesn’t trust anybody, let alone the most absurd lie she has ever heard.

As Katia staggers through the streets of Melbourne, she realises with a sickening sense of dread that Julius was telling her the truth. But not only has she travelled through a century, so has her father. The peace she so desperately wants, has escaped her again.

Katia stirs more than strictly professional feelings within Julius, however he harbours a dark secret he knows will break Katia apart if she finds out. Blackmailed, Julius needs Katia to end his own nightmare and faces an impossible choice. He ignores his feeling until they burn a simmering ache in his heart.

When Julius is attacked and kidnapped, bleeding and on the verge of death, Katia must face her demons. Fight like she’s never fought before to save the man she loves, or risk everything and became the Hell on Earth her father has groomed her to become.
