The Midnight Guard - who protect our community from the vicious things that lie outside our walls - calls to me.

I have failed my duty as a Beautiful One. War has arrived at our doorstep. The Glittering City is falling. And worst yet: Innocent people are dying. But all does not seem lost. In the midst of the chaos taking place in the city, me and the last of the Beautiful Ones are rescued by a group of people known as The Southern Saints, who some see as terrorists but others as our salvation. Their goal, they say, has always been to fight the South’s cruel practices.
I have accomplished the goal of my lifetime. I have become a Beautiful One. But it is not at all what I expected. Between the glitz, the glam, the fame, fortune, and my recent wedding, it’s almost impossible to believe that a civil war rages beyond the capitol city’s walls, and that my life was nearly taken because of it. This is why, the day after the attempt on my life, I choose to designate my Purpose to the great war.

I have always loved the ocean. Beautiful and tranquil, it seems like it can do absolutely no harm. Until the night my parents go missing, and then are subsequently found dead. Both have been viciously mauled by something off the Gulf - something even the medical examiner claims is an "unknown animal." But the worst part? I swear I saw something in the water the night they were both killed. But this is no chance occurrence. As the body count begins to rise, and as more tragedies unfold, I realize that something has to be done.
My name is Jake Althaus, and for the most part, I seem to have it all. A loving partner, a devoted dog, a promising future in nursing school. The only problem is: I’ve been plagued with persistent headaches, and though I loathe to admit that anything is wrong, a routine checkup with my general practitioner, and the subsequent MRI that follows, delivers a devastating truth. I have brain cancer. It isn’t terminal, but that doesn’t change the dread that festers in my heart, in my spirit, in my brain. Surgery, followed by chemotherapy, is the only hope of a successful recovery.

But just when I think I have my ranked placement in the bag, a rolling blackout sweeps the city, leaving me not only devastated in the present, but hopeless about the future.
My mother once said that only the Beautiful Ones survive. This is because in the war-torn Great South, beauty is a currency, and to have it means you will never have to worry about a thing.
