The Price of Freedom: Lost Souls

In a world torn apart by war, Kenneth J. Sparks and Kayla Sorenson have been carving out a life for themselves at a converted warehouse–in enemy occupied territory–for the past couple of years now.
And while they may have their differences in opinions and viewpoints at times, both freedom fighters rely heavily on each other for support, companionship, and even…love?
This would be a simple affair if only one of them wasn’t quite human: A memory plagued mechanical girl whose links to the universe encompasses the space/time continuum.
And for Kayla Sorenson, nothing is more vexing than having issues remembering the important parts of your life when you want to be seeped in some romance with the man who rescued you from a nightmarish situation only four years earlier.
