The group must leave the camp for good and escape the wolves, the Brown Shirts, and the Hunters. Most important, they need to stop Chancellor Maddox before she executes her Final Solution and grows even more powerful.
While the others are seeking freedom, for Hope, the battle has become personal. She wants revenge, no matter what the cost—and she’s willing to sacrifice anything standing in her way. The group may still be weak, but they don’t have time to wait. They must overthrow the Chancellor, even if it means joining forces with those who once betrayed them.
It has been sixty-five years since the Genetic War, but the Defects and the Pures are still at odds. The Pure government is on the hunt for the remaining Defects, and no one is safe. With government patrols on the rise in what was once known as Minneapolis, eighteen-year-old Lyla Paxton struggles to find her place in the decrepit world with empty memories about her past. When a visit from a mysterious stranger claims that Lyla is the savior of the Defects, it throws her life into motion. Lyla must leave everything and everyone behind to journey to an unknown place full of unfamiliar faces to prepare for the inevitable war.
Lyla’s new life is filled with excitement and love, entangled with fear and confusion, and topped off with the unrealistic pressure of trying to remember who she is and where she comes from. Each obstacle pulls Lyla in a different direction, stretching her thin, until she hits her breaking point.
Will Lyla save the Defects? Or will she die trying?
