The ruthless Grifters want Ella Kepler, and they won't stop until she's theirs.
"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
After my stick figure comic series “The Adventures of The Unstoppable” failed to garner any fans, I accepted that drawing would never be my superpower. I also accepted that I was not, after all, The Unstoppable. Twelve-year-old me never forgot the thrill of adventure, however, and the mystery of heroes, powers, and a bad guy who maybe is only bad because he feels stuck. Or maybe he’s just bad, and that’s interesting, too.
My writing has taken me around the worlds of my brain, and also around a lot of restaurants. After years of being the pickiest eater in the south, I somehow got a stint as a city blogger and food columnist, which taught me that people are too obsessed with queso and not excited enough about chicken noodle soup. I’ve since said goodbye to journalistic writing and hello to creative writing, which, after all, is what I’ve always done.
I currently live in Florida, where I complain about the humidity but never make any plans to move. My husband and I have two cats (only two), who are excellent sounding boards for ideas.

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.
