Kate had survived. She had lived through pain and torment and now she was on the other side, where all the happiness was supposed to be. But with Alec’s vengeful punishment for escaping him, she can’t touch anyone without hurting them.
Alec still wants to create a Level Five and he’s dangerously close. That power under his control would mean unraveling the world as it stands. The world Kate has not yet started to enjoy. She won’t be able to rest until her body, her mind is fixed, and Alec won’t get his beloved power without her help.
The two warring sides of Rogues and Shadows will have to meet. Kate will have to confront Alec and his cruel ambition once again. But every moment with the Shadows is detrimental to those she loves, especially Kylan. So she must find a way to outsmart the person who taught her everything she knows, the most feared Shadow in the world.
Kate is strong. She survived once. But even the strongest people can break with the right pressure, and Alec is ready to tear her life apart.

The two of them huddled on the stone floor, tucked behind the ornate columns that spun into a glistening carving of flowers above.
“Just concentrate,” Thayer whispered. “Focus all your attention on the paper.”
We had been at this for hours. Neither of us had been terribly successful at helping her adjust.
Her brown eyes narrowed at the paper sitting on top of her hands. She held her breath and stared. Nothing happened.
“I don’t understand what’s supposed to be happening here,” Lisa sighed as she continued to stare.
“You’re trying to destroy the cells of the page. Think of them as individuals. You want to rip apart the very DNA, turn it black, disintegrate it,” Thayer coached, not giving up.
Even I was holding my breath, hoping for something. She had been trying for four days and nothing had happened yet. The grocery store human’s energy was wearing off too quickly. I was surprised she was still awake.
“That doesn’t make any sense. I can’t focus on the cells of the page. That’s not possible.” Lisa let the paper fall to the ground and her shoulders slumped.
I closed my eyes and let the breath of air out. We weren’t going to be making any more progress today. A short while ago, she was a human and none of what we were asking her to do would’ve been possible.
“Hey, it’s okay,” Thayer comforted her.
“It’s not okay. Stop saying this is okay,” Lisa groaned.
Her eyes glanced over to me, and then down at my arm. I knew what she was thinking without having to read her mind. She would never say it out loud, but a part of her blamed me for all of this.
I didn’t fault her for that. She was right.
Alec had only come for her because she was special to me. He needed one more thing to drive me into utter insanity. It had worked, until Kylan came.
Thayer put his hand on her shoulder as she rested her head in her hands. She was frustrated, exhausted. We hadn’t taken her out to get any new energy yet. But at least she had stopped refusing to go, even if I stopped asking.
I thought maybe if she understood what energy felt like moving in her body, she could recognize it in someone else.
In truth, I had no idea how best to help her.
