North Wind is the sequel to White Queen. The story of Johnny and Braemar told in White Queen, the story of a love affair between an alien and a human that almost destroyed the world, is a romantic legend in the world of the future.
Now, differing factions are in search of the fabled faster-than-light drive that Johnny and Braemar used in their failed attempt to prevent the alien settlement of Earth. At the center of the search is the alien Bella, who may be Johnny's daughter, and her human protector, Sidney Carton.
Together they travel through the war-torn ruins of future Europe, searching for the key to the last great scientific discovery of humanity, watched and pursued by others, alien and human. And they must risk love, as well as death, to succeed.
