Kayli Winchester is on the run. Chased out of the hospital when Alice returns with a warning that she'll be coming for Kayli soon. Emergency protocol is initiated. Axel, Raven, Corey, Brandon, and Marc are preparing to run themselves. They need to separate from the Academy to protect everyone from the danger.
Kayli and the Academy team will do whatever they can to protect their families and friends. They may have to leave Charleston forever to escape Alice's wrath.
However, Alice proves she can be everywhere at once. She's aligned with powerful forces, a group possibly more powerful than the Academy, with corrupt police and officials on their side. No one is safe. No one can be trusted. When people go missing, the police are pointing fingers at Axel and the others.
Just when Axel and the rest of the team are coming to understand their own complicated romantic relationships with Kayli, they're faced with the ultimate realization: staying together could get them all killed.
There's only one way to handle this: Break all the rules, get to Alice, and ensure she'll never be able to exact revenge again. The consequences will be severe. Success could mean ejection from the Academy. Complete ex-communication. Family will be torn apart. And worse, the team might be forced to disband forever.
Everything is at stake. Not even the Academy is prepared for how this will go down. The entire organization may not survive.
