I waited for the blow, but it didn't come. There was a gust of wind and a loud bang, then nothing but a faint ringing in my ears and tingling in my palms. When I opened my eyes, the woman was gone...
After making a shocking discovery about herself, Lucy must embrace her destiny or follow in the tragic footsteps of the women who came before her.
Lucy Owens was your average eighteen-year-old with overprotective guardians until an ancient Prophecy sent an army of Gifteds (humans with supernatural abilities) after her.
Still haunted by her last encounter with Donovan's Army, Lucy is looking forward to putting the past few months behind her and preparing herself to eventually face the Big Bad. When Donovan and his followers have other plans, Lucy barely escapes with her life, until she discovers something about herself that changes everything.
After Embry and Gabriel, the men sworn to protect her, whisk Lucy away to New Orleans, she is left with more questions than answers. There, Lucy must confront her guilt, face her fears and dig deep into the lives of her ancestors in order to master her newfound skills. Hopefully before the Big Bad finds her and completes his centuries-long quest.
