While her team scrambles to find the antidote to the black magic affecting her mind, Alexis makes new plans of her own. Until her memory returns, though, her abilities as a leader are questioned, especially when an outside group arrives to initiate a coup against her and her team.
Awakening amongst strangers calling her by name and talking to her with familiarity, Alexis can't recall who she is or what happened to her memory. Confused about herself but still able to recall skills and some abilities here and there, Alexis feels wholly out of place, especially when looked to as a the Angel's Army leader in the post-apocalyptic world. Then of course there is a certain man named Tristan that makes her react to him in a way she can't control, but still has no memory of. So when danger and sickness begins to fall upon the underground base Alexis has to decide to help fight or flee. And the biggest question remains will she ever retrieve her memory or push on without it?
Overall, great icebreaker into the next novels. This novella helps remind readers what happened last time, as well as explaining a bit of what's been going on in the meantime. Alexis has amnesia and it's heartbreaking to see her doubt herself, especially when she interacts with Tristan and her babies. Poor Tristan got a taste of single parenting this time around, yet handles like he's super hot dad. All that said, I loved how much stronger Alexis became after everything was resolved, because with the hint of what's to come for the group it looks like the rebuilding of the world will be hard work to say the least. So definitely grab the novella to tied you over as the next novel is sure to be great.
