After Nightland’s vicious attack on the domes, the safety and perfection of the world within the glass has been contaminated. Desperate to rebuild, outsiders are allowed into the domes to help, breaking the cardinal rule: outsiders and Domers must always be separated. But the city is in shambles, crumbling into chaos without the Vampers of Nightland to keep order, and one name is carried on the wind: Nola.
Clinging to Jeremy, Nola struggles to find a way to exist in the domes, turning her back on all she learned in the city. But when one of the outsiders brings the dark secrets of the domes to light, the line between survival and murder blurs against the spectre of the dying world.
Can Nola follow the dark path laid out by the Domes? Will the dangers of the night become her new sanctuary?

Excerpt (with permission of author and publisher):
Excerpt from Chapter Sixteen
Nola shuddered as she took the step that carried her from the road onto the bridge. The metal beneath her clanged with every step. The noise of the guards’ heavy boots shook the air and rattled her lungs like a vicious tolling bell, counting down the steps she had to take before she reached the middle of the bridge.
A line of people approached from the other side, holding torches and lights high in the air. They didn’t have any weapons Nola could see, but if they were wolves or Vampers, they wouldn’t need guns to kill the guards, or Nola.
Finally, Captain Ridgeway held up a hand, and the guards stopped as one.
The silence rang louder in Nola’s ears than the clanging of the bridge had.
The group from the city stopped fifty feet away. There were nearly twenty of them in a tight pack, all tense, ready to fight or run.
She hoped they would choose to run.
“We were told we could speak to Nola Kent,” the man at the front of the pack called from across the gap.
The man was tall with sinewy muscles. His torn clothes hung loosely on his frame. Even in the chill night air, the man wore short sleeves and seemed unbothered by the cold. In the dim light, Nola could barely make out the reddish hue of the man’s eyes.
