WARNING BEFORE YOU DOWNLOAD: Where Anza is fluff, flirty wings, and sarcasm, Cascade often narrates in something like dark, dreamy trauma. It’s a heavier style also involving deeper subject matter like post-traumatic stress disorder, childhood abuse in her past, and (possibly slightly) dysfunctional sexual fantasies (for the love interest, not for anyone weird). Most of all, Cascade’s story is a love story of two messed-up people, and while it has its light, fun moments and action, it is very much NOT a light book. So please, please be sure you want something like this before downloading.
Also, this is the equivalent of an ARC, meaning this version will undergo a further edit and I’m not sure how much will change, and it’s also not a sequel to Under a Caged Sky (although at some point I mistakenly called it so, for which I apologize); this is just the story from Cascade’s point of view in the same time frame (originally it was one book with two story lines, but I had to split it into two separate books).
