Elliot, hung up on guilt over his former actions, tries to right his wrongs which leads him face-to-face with the troubling secrets of the compound. Adam's run-in with the enigmatic prophet makes him question Refuge Inc. and the survivors' future.

Working together to uncover the mysteries of Refuge Inc. not only reveals much about the sunless world beyond the compound walls, but exposes the truth about the compound's occupants … including themselves.

Reviewer:  Cat
Review:   This is the second book in this series. Adam and Elliott found each other after an asteroid hit the west coast. They became intimate in the first book. This one picks up after they find the refuge. Adam is still dealing with just coming out and finding he has feelings for Elliot. It’s a lot for them to deal with just coming through breakups, and the disaster. They decided to give each other space to deal with the new situation and their feelings.  The refuge seems too good to be true and Elliot soon finds out why.
This book is fast paced and has many twists and turns. I loved how you can feel the love between Elliot and Adam though they really haven’t dealt with it. They choose to put the intimacy aside to face the new reality and besides really how could you have sex in the confines they are in. This just gave the whole story a more realistic feel.  I can’t wait to see what happens in the next one!
Recommendation: I recommend this to anyone that likes post-apocalyptic stories, Loving relationships, two people trying to find themselves, and mystery and suspense.
