It should not." --Elizabeth Bear Thomas Tucker has always thought of himself as a warrior and a protector. In his mind, there was no difference, until an IED shattered his leg and his identity. Alone and near the end of his rope, he takes a chance and makes a discovery that turns his world inside out. What he finds, though, just might save him after all.
