The first sixteen years of Arabella
Penthallow’s life have been a lie…
In a world where deception is the key to survival, Ara has
kept up the charade of being a perfect Legion Leader’s daughter.
But a darkness stirs, and she discovers she is Touched, a mortal
gifted by the Gods. The Touched are as rare as they are feared,
and Ara is forced to leave Union City for neighboring Midnight
City to protect herself and those she loves, leaving Tove Thorn,
the boy who has always known her heart, behind.
Carter Decker has vowed to burn
Union City to the ground…
Midnight City’s cocky, infamous bad boy always gets what
he wants, and he wants Union City to pay for burning his
mother alive because she was Touched. When Carter meets
Ara, she is everything he’s been taught to hate. Then he learns
she is Touched—just like him—he isn’t sure who he hates
more…the Touched girl whose father killed his mother, or
himself for being tempted by someone he’s sworn to kill.
They are told they’re fated to be soul mates…and
they each wish the other never existed.
When Midnight City is attacked by Union City, Carter and
Arabella will do the unthinkable…even if it means falling for
the enemy. The truth lies in Arabella’s home nation, and
Tove is waiting. Soul mates or not, he has an advantage
Carter doesn’t, fated souls be damned.
War is coming…and Ara is the prize.
