    Summary

    “Consider what’s at stake, Michael,” she pleads.

    “I have.” Michael’s shoulders straighten. “The lives of my captain and my crew.” Her mother opens her mouth to retort, but Michael preempts her. “Even if I were to reach Vulcan in time, against all odds, there would be nothing for me there. No mate. No ritual. Only death.”

    Summary

    Summary

    “It was good, right?”

    “It’s… that—no, it’s dirty…”

    “No, it’s not,” Kara answers without missing a beat, calm like she usually isn’t. “Not an inch of you could be, Alex. You are perfect.” The soft sincerity that colors her tone makes Alex’s insides twist hard. When Kara tugs the agent down once more, she’s happy to find no resistance.

    Well then.

    Summary

    Alex Danvers knows what rock bottom looks like, and this isn't it. But still, getting fired and blackballed by your mob-connected boss is not really 'success'. Reality TV has not ever been part of the plan. But it's time to make a change, and Knives and Fire: National City is her best chance at making it.

    The fact that it will piss off her mom? Even better.

    Ever since the explosion that took her parents from her, Kara Olsen has been struggling to find out where she belongs and what she's meant to do with her life. But everything she pursues seems to end in failure. Working on her boyfriend's taco truck seemed to be the answer, but without an infusion of cash and some new ideas, the taco truck is doomed.

    Going on Knives and Fire: National City is a harebrained scheme to save it. And the prospect of public embarrassment when Kara inevitably fails again is mortifying. But what else is there? Just giving up?

     

    This season on Knives and Fire: Knives! Fire! and Dreams. 8 young chefs come together to prove themselves in the oven of destiny. Bonds will be forged, remade and tested, but in the fires of competition, what you truly find is yourself.
