There's nothing pretty about war - blood, death, pain...that's all it brings. And this one has already taken its sacrifice. But there's no choice anymore - we need this new world and fighting is the only way. Damien, Theo, Killian, Ryder, Hiro, Joshua, and I face more challenges than ever before, death a shadow over us that even I'm not safe from.

Thrust into a world of politics and status I'm not sure I agree with, my unease grows as I struggle to find my place.
A normal, if not rebellious, human, Cameron Dupree has spent the last three years finding his way through a school of the rich and powerful...literally. He's surrounded by the supernatural cream of the crop: children of alpha werewolves, banshees with ties to the United Nations, a faerie princess from another realm of reality, and a teenage succubus who might be the scariest, and sexiest, of them all. Everything is going as great as can be for a vanilla human...until one misstep lands him in trouble with a noble of the Unseelie Fae.

As Damien, Theo, Ryder, Hiro, Killian, and I work to find our place among the rebellion and face the Council, I can't escape the feeling that something else is coming for us in the dark, Alaskan winter.

No one asked me if this was what I wanted. To be a harbinger of change. To motivate those around me to join a rebellion. To become a symbol of hope and rebirth in a war that's not my own. Yet, the duty has been thrust upon me, and it's not one I can refuse. Challenged from all sides, I'm forced to make increasingly harder choices as I learn to trust my gut and the powers that burn within me. As my past and my future collide, Damien, Ryder, Theo, Killian, Hiro, and I are all pushed to step up and take on responsibilities that none of us have prepared for.
