A scientist mommy battling beasties better be handy with a scalpel.
Elise Swanson is trying to give her daughters a decent childhood. This should be a simple task, but the invading undergrounders – subterranean humanoids that have existed since the dawn of mankind – make outdoor playtime a tad tricky.
After fleeing Georgia and surviving six months of bumbling self-sufficiency, Elise and her daughters meet Jason. He's tough and nature-savvy. Pit stop fights with beasties define the survival-road that the four companions navigate. The bloody pavement finally ends in Washington State at a government safe zone where the trekkers hope to build a stationary life.
A little rest and rehab would be nice, but Elise is quickly led down a path of research and deception where humanity's future isn't a priority. She becomes leader of a secret plan and long nights in the lab keep her busy. She strives to destroy the undergrounders and the life of an underhuman crossbreed hangs in the balance.
Haphazardly conceived and manufactured, the H2H (Humanoid-to-Human) chromosome-targeting nanotech has a small probability of success, but Elise has to believe it will work. Hour by hour, she becomes less confident and more emotionally compromised by the rapidly growing, stunning underhuman. Her maternal nature leads to a late-night escapade resulting in a platinum-haired, third daughter and a million uncertainties.
Fleeing her home, Elise had two loved ones to shelter. That number has risen. When the not-so-safe zone is invaded by beasties, she will save her family... no matter the consequences.

Being a test-tube crossbreed can present challenges - Meg Brown knows this all too well.
A shattered sanctuary forces her to run... away from the family that used to be and towards the father she barely knows. The only clue she has to her father's whereabouts is a scribbled address and a well-used atlas.
H2H (Humanoid to Human) inoculation has been vastly effective and the last of the wild undergrounders patrol the cold woods of the northern continents. Meg must find a way to save herself and her adopted sister. The small backpack of supplies is barely enough for a few days travel. Trekking from Canada to New Mexico seems impossible.
After a year on the road, Meg worries her father may have moved. To her surprise, she finds not only her biological dad, but also her mother.
Humanity had hoped to rebuild their population after the H2H rendered the undergrounders infertile. As it turned out, humans were affected also and the only generation born after H2H were also reproductively unviable.
Meg's father is searching for the cure to humanity's infertility. Meg's mother is pregnant. Will the world accept the coupling of human and beastie for children's sake?
