Merrick and Jeff are looked to as the leaders and protectors of the ragtag family.
Relationships are what really make this book shine. Sherry and Merrick continue their wonderful love affair and are the glue that binds the group together. Lines between Specials, Keepers, Lighters, Enforcers, and Regular People blend and flow naturally as wonderful new relationships blossom and grow.
