French teen Sacha Winters can't die. He can throw himself off a roof, be stabbed, even shot, and he will always survive. Until the day when a long-forgotten prophecy says he must die. Worse still, his death will trigger something awful. Something unimaginably deadly.
And that day is closing in.
Taylor Montclair is a studious English girl, hanging out with her friends and desperate to get into Oxford University, until she starts shorting out the lights with her brain. She's also the only person on earth who can save Sacha.
There are just a couple of small problems. The two of them have never met. They live in different countries. And powerful forces will stop at nothing to keep them apart.
They have eight weeks to find each other. Will they survive long enough to save the world?
This tale of modern alchemy, co-written with the award-winning French author Carina Rozenfeld, is the first book in a two-book series.
