About the Book

Harmony Vindico has already lived through the worst nightmare of her life. As the victim of a brutal rape, she struggles to simply survive every day. When she finally returns to high school in an attempt to steer her life back to normal and escape her dysfunctional family, she strikes up a friendship with Keith Draykon, an introverted transfer student with startling blue eyes. But there is only one problem—Keith is far from normal and, worse, hiding a dark secret.

As they begin work on a school ecology project together, Harmony tries to ignore the premonition that something horrible is about to happen—even the fact that Keith’s pupils seem to sometimes morph into strange shapes. Even so, it isn’t long before Harmony realizes that her old crush, Damon, and current crush, Keith, are not really who they say they are. Suddenly, Harmony finds herself in the midst of an ancient feud between two species. The battle’s outcome will eliminate one of the races from the face of the earth forever.

In this exciting fantasy novel, two teenagers reveal their true identities, propelling Harmony into a dangerous journey as the last hope to save the world—and Keith—before it is too late.
