Eighteen-year-old Lydia Brone never imagined she’d be convicted of first-degree murder.
But when her mom’s drunken boyfriend becomes abusive, she does what any protective daughter would do—she gets involved.
Killing him wasn’t part of her plan.
With handcuffs around her small wrists, Lydia stares out through the helicopter’s window as Kormace Island—the Island of Killers—comes into view. She’s read about the penal island online… she just never thought she’d be sentenced to serve three years on it.
Learn how to build a fire? She can do that. Learn how to hunt? She’ll figure it out. But how can anyone survive an island full of convicted murderers? That’s a death sentence. If Lydia hopes to ever return home, she’ll have to forget who she is and become someone else… someone capable of choosing survival over humanity.
