A lonely, angry guy.
Alienated by the power that sets him apart, Aidan McBrien suffers in silence, choosing to live behind a mask to protect himself, even from those he loves. He is desperate to connect with someone who understands, but Aidan fights a constant battle to control the gifts that threaten to push him over the edge, and he dreads the day his world will look to him to fulfill a prophecy he doesn't even believe in.
Allie Carmichael is dying inside and she doesn't even realize it.
Half a world away, she endures an isolation she doesn't understand. As she forges a hesitant friendship for the first time in years, Allie sees a tiny glimmer of the life she wants, and the person she wants to be, but her instincts tell her the timing is all wrong.
Allie and Aidan's paths are about to converge. With others making decisions for them, will they ever truly understand the immense power they posses, or the prophecy that might not be about Aidan after all?
