The ruthless Grifters want Ella Kepler, and they won't stop until she's theirs.
WINNER: Pinnacle Book Achievement Award, Summer 2019 - Best Science Fiction
"Thorne does an amazing job showing the complexity of war: the who-is-right and who-is-wrong when both sides have desires that make sense, the pain it inflicts upon generations, the search for truth, and the inner-battle we all must face when choosing which side we will and should fight for... I highly, HIGHLY, recommend this book." ~ K.A. Parkinson, Author of "The Chosen Chronicles"
When Ella's metahuman abilities manifest and draw the attention of the Grifters, she seeks safety from the paramilitary training academy of the MTA. Thrust alongside soldiers programmed to fight or die, Ella struggles to stay afloat, hopeful that the Grifters will forget about her.
But Grifters have a long memory, and their nature isn't compassionate. If Ella doesn't give them what they want, someone she loves will pay the price—and it will be all Ella's fault.

About the Author
EDITOR: For me, editing is taking something I already love and helping it grow. I appreciate thick skin and an open mind. In writing, often both are necessary for success. After all, writing is rewriting.

3.5/4 stars It was really hard for me to read the first half of this book. I almost gave up reading it. *hides* The reason being is because I really disliked Ella. I know she was angry about certain situations and felt guilty, but I did not like how she handled things. However, I'm really glad I continued reading because wow! There are some potent truths she learned that really spoke to my heart. She had an extremely touching transformation that opened my eyes to how we can stop hate. Not only that, I went from not being fully invested in her journey, to really wanting her to succeed in what she's called to do. I was quite surprised how things unfolded concerning One and the Grifters. Both of those situations are what spoke to my heart the most.
