Overview

Can the future ever erase the past? Rose has a Cross mother and a Nought father in a society where the pale-skinned Noughts are treated as inferiors and those with dual heritage face a life-long battle against deep-rooted prejudices.

As Rose takes her first steps away from Sephy and into her father’s world, she finds herself drawn inexorably into danger.
