Full Description

Lai, Jay, Al, and Erik are on the run after the military accuses them of being traitors. Tensions between everyone are high, but they have to stick together if they want to survive. And somehow stop the war that’s now in full swing.

But when Erik returns to the rebels to find answers about his past, Lai, Al, and Jay have no choice but to go to the Order—a peace coalition bent on stopping the rebels and dissolving the enmity between gifted and ungifted. However, the longer the war drags on, the more Lai’s long-kept secrets threaten to destroy everything she’s ever worked for. Sparks fly as the team constantly questions whether they can trust one another and everyone tries to navigate a war that will change everything.


Okay. Let’s go.

I’ve barely sent the thought to everyone when a bright, sudden flash lights the night. Flames engulf the wooden frame of what remains of the front gate. Guards all over the facility grounds shout and race toward the entrance. Their swords and badges flash in the light of the fire.

“That idiot,” I hiss. “What are we going to do if the guards call for backup? Not to mention anyone in the area near here will be able to see a fire like that. I told her to start a small fire—what part of that is so hard to understand?”

“Guess we better get in and get out fast, then,” Erik says. He’s already standing, crouched in the shadows cast by the trees and shrubs around us.

I sigh, but there’s no point continuing my rant. He’s right.

We make a run for the nearest opening in the main warehouse building—a jagged, gaping thing that looks intent on swallowing us whole. All the guards outside have swarmed to the fire by the front, so there’s no one to stop us.
