Fifteen-year-old Rose is alone. Her father has been imprisoned, and a death sentence is almost certain. She has been rejected by the law-enforcement agency she was groomed for since birth, and lives in fear of the terrible secret that, if exposed, will destroy her. Meanwhile, the laws that have maintained peace are breaking down, and two rival militias are preparing to fight a war. As darker elements of her father’s past emerge, Rose realizes that the rules of good and evil will not protect her anymore. In a world of monsters, how long can trust, loyalty and justice survive?

Eighteen years ago, a dimensional break ripped open the sky, drawing humans into an ancient conflict. Otherworldly souls rained down and fused with those of people, dividing the population into the green-eyed, magical Gifted and the dark-eyed, nonmagical Ashkind. A devastating war followed, and the Gifted have managed a fragile peace ever since, largely through a brutal law enforcement organization known as the Department. 15 year-old Rose’s father, David, has a leading role in the Department. Rose and David are Gifted, but they are also something else --- something terrible.
