If you had to choose between the lives of millions or the lives of your loved ones, how could you?
Ash is done with war. It's fair enough; after all, she spent her childhood fighting one. At eight, she was scientifically made into one of the best soldier ever known—but now she’s seventeen, and the war’s over. All she wants to do is live peacefully, get a manicure or two, and leave the life of the Altered behind.
Unfortunately, her manicurist dumped her after all the broken nails. Even worse, the other Altered are hunting her down.
After four years of hiding, they’ve finally found her. One of these three is Ky, a boy who’s gotten ridiculously attractive. He makes her head goes fuzzy; something that’s is kind of dangerous, considering her life. Not two days after Ky and the others appear, everything goes wrong. A civilian mob, a black tattoo, and a self righteous idiot push Ash back to PEKA, the corrupt company that Altered her. From there, things get even worse as Ash is forced to choose. She can lead PEKA's Altered army against suddenly murderous civilians, or she can step back and let her oldest friends be killed.
Ash is used to having godlike power. Using it, though, has never been so hard.
So. That's it. Yup. Going away now. Farewell.
