Rachel Brackett's plans for an ordinary life in the Bitterroot Mountains developed into shattered dreams and evolved into two lives she must keep separate.
Struggling to protect friends with deep secrets, she leans on Leonardo to keep her sanity intact. Rachel's carefully constructed world tilts on a dangerous axis when Leonardo disappears, and the conflict with the Others shifts towards war.
Justiz and Rachel galvanize into action, their pursuit of Leonardo taking precious time. They must reach him before the lives of loved ones are lost, and the world outside of the mountains clashes with the long-hidden community, where their worst nightmares are real.
