Nineteen year old, India Beaumont has bipolar II disorder. Living in a world where solar flares have reshaped society, she must fight to survive in Ward Four where the only people thriving are part of an exclusive motorcycle club. Glory MC don’t play well with strangers but when Indy manages to land a job as a bartender at their clubhouse, she gets the fresh start she’s always dreamed of. While everyone else is focused on the flares, no one will be paying attention to her or the disorder she means to keep from everyone.
The president’s son, Ian Haste, is the first to zero-in on her, seeming to sense the kindred spirit that she desperately hides. As secretary and treasurer of Glory MC, Hastie is exactly who Indy needs to avoid, but the reckless lifestyle he lives may also be the one thing that helps him understand her better than anyone else.
As tensions rise between Ward leaders, Indy’s secret threatens to be exposed before she is ready, and with only pieces of the puzzle, Hastie doesn’t know what to believe. When he finally discovers the secret she’s been hiding, will Hastie still be able to love her or will he deem Indy too crazy even for him?

One of the best parts of being a reviewer is getting an opportunity to read authors I never would have found on my own. I was unfamiliar with Ana Jolene and while the blurb for Glory looked interesting, that’s never a guarantee. I’m glad to say, the book lived up to my expectations.
Jolene creates a detailed, intriguing world. Solar flares have destroyed civilization as we know it and continue to wreak havoc. Without a functioning government, Glory MC has established order in Ward Four.
At one point I marveled to myself that Jolene was so able to incorporate Indy’s mental illness, the collapse of society, the struggle the MC has with the Phantoms and the leader of Ward Seven and yet she did it well. The story moved quickly with a lot going on but never too quickly or too much.
Indy’s mental illness is handled so well. Indy is a very sympathetic character but not pathetic. She’s fully aware of her issues and deals with them as best she can. People see her struggles much more than she ever realizes and love her anyway. Hastie’s unconditional love is amazing. He comments repeatedly about how lucky he is to have such an amazing woman. He sees her as such a fantastic person, never an emotional cripple.
I’m delving into Origin immediately and waiting anxiously for Nirvana.
