For most people, death is an end. For Jace Cutler, it’s only the beginning. After succumbing to a fatal stab wound, he awakens in a hospital room with no memory and an empty space where his soul used to be. Worst of all is the glow. Everyone around him is enveloped by a strange white aura he hungers to possess, none more appealing than the one belonging to his doctor, Lia Benson.
Lia has always been ruled by reason, refusing to put stock in such silly things as destiny…until Jace dies in her arms, only to miraculously come back to life. Now, everything’s changed. Whenever he’s near, her soul responds, and she’s consumed by odd dreams she’s convinced are Jace’s lost memories.
When Lia is kidnapped, Jace tracks her to an abandoned military complex, where he discovers a shocking explanation for who—and what—he is. Something no longer human, a dark legacy that until now has lain dormant within him. Something destined to destroy the one woman he’d sacrifice the world to protect.
