The Takers have come, and they are hunting. Hunting for the one girl with blood so powerful it could destroy worlds. 17 year old Freya Catten has never lived in a home of her own. She’s never stepped foot in a classroom, and never gone on a date. She lived in hiding, home, with her mentally ill mother for most of her life. But five years ago, her mother left her in the middle of the night and never came back. For Freya, life has been filled with nothing but gritty survival.
But when she does defy her long gone mother’s warning and comes out of her isolation, it seems that everywhere she goes the dreaded Takers appear. The powerful militaristic men repel from impossible openings in the sky on silver cords to snatch up anyone in their grasp, and the people they capture disappear forever. After the unexpected help of a traveling soldier named Theron Hawk, Freya forges a reluctant friendship.
She had been told her entire life to trust no one, but her attraction to the rugged, gorgeous stranger makes her heart have other ideas.
Freya Catten’s existence is shrouded by dark secrets she can’t piece together. But Theron has secrets of his own and a past that he can't escape. Will he help Freya unravel her past and escape the Takers, or will he lead them right to her?
