Will she be the Society's salvation... or its downfall?
The black-ops government agency called Sigma broke Justin Delgado, trained his psionic talent, and turned him into a killer. Then he escaped and joined the Society, an underground resistance movement of psions determined to use their talents to bring Sigma down. Competent, cold, and cruelly efficient, he's the best operative the Society has, a legend among the psions who fight a shadow war against an enemy that owns the courts, the press, and the police. Feared even by his own teammates, hunted by the government, and too damaged to feel anything but clinical rage, he is utterly alone - until he meets Rowan.
When Rowan Price stumbles across Delgado's team in an abandoned house, he is assigned to make contact with her, bring her in, and keep her alive - because Rowan is one of the most powerful psychics the resistance has ever encountered. If the government gets its hands on her, she could very well mean the downfall of the resistance, because nobody, not even Rowan, is quite sure how far her talents extend.
The Society will welcome Rowan, if she can stay alive long enough to join them. Unfortunately, there's a traitor buried in the ranks. If the Society goes down, Rowan is at risk. God alone knows what Delgado will do to keep her safe, because Rowan is fast becoming the only thing in the world he cares about...
Lilith Saintcrow lives in Vancouver, Washington with her two children and assorted other strays. She has been writing since she was nine-years-old. Find her on the web at lilithsaintcrow.com.

Lilith Saintcrow carefully constructs a powerful story, weaving in conspiracy theories tapping on the fears of everyone through the use of secret evil government organizations and the fear of the unknown. Her characters are fully developed as well as the rebels and their mission. One can see the growth and doubts experienced by young adults through the friendships and relationships developed by Saintcrow.
An edge of your seat type of book for certain! I couldn’t shut it off, I was disappointed only in the fact that it ended. I hope to listen to the next installment.
Rayna Cole, the narrator, projected the characters strongly and with a clear voice. Her accents were well done and her ease with narration was clear. A true professional!
If you enjoy conspiracies, action, and a little romance – this is the book for you.
