I can't go home. It's not safe. Nowhere is.Tess Eckhart isn't crazy. She's not suffering from psychosis. She and Luka Williams are part of The Gifting. Before they can find out what that means, the man with all the answers turns up dead. The only thing he left behind? A few patient files that lead to the nation's most lawless city.With authorities chasing them, Luka and Tess escape into the very heart of peril and against all odds, find an underground community of people just like them. They aren't gathered together for the sole purpose of survival, either. They have a plan and a purpose???to awaken as many people with The Gifting as possible. It's dangerous and deadly work. Tess wants to help. Luka is desperate to keep her safe???a task that proves increasingly difficult as Tess's gifting comes to light.Is Tess Eckhart the One they've been waiting for? The One with the power to save them all?
