After a quiet, sheltered life with her guardians, Lucy Owens can’t wait to graduate high school so she can go off to college and reinvent herself in a world where no one knows her.
Instead, she finds herself hunted by an army of Gifteds, a subset of humans with supernatural abilities. As she discovers more about herself and her ancestors, to whom she bears a striking resemblance, she realizes that she doesn’t even know herself. At all.
With the help of Embry and Gabriel, two Gifteds sworn to protect her, Lucy will have to let go of her fears, then dig deep into herself, her past, and her ancestry if she wants even a chance of surviving.
