Vanessa and Zander Roth sit balanced on the edge of impending death and unthinkable power. The Eroi hunting them hide, waiting for their chance to strike, but the Godlings keep them at bay for now.
Even though the Godling training that the arrogant David provides is indeed improving their control, his methods are cruel and harsh. Van barely restrains her anger, but Zander embraces the training. To him, it’s his only hope of redeeming himself.
Van’s always reliable intuition strengthens into frightening visions and leaves her fearing Zander’s future. She is desperate to protect her brother, but with her sixteenth birthday looming and the eruption of the full strength of her hunger on its way, she has her own problems to deal with.
Redemption and protection both take a back seat when a shocking discovery puts everything they have worked for in jeopardy. The choice between safety and freedom has never been more important, and in the end… they may not have a choice at all.
