Chasing, assembling, and keeping his family protected—that is the life seventeen-year-old Kol knows. At that point strong, mysterious Mya touches base from the south with her family, and Kol is dazzled. He needs her to like and trust him, yet any trusts of awing her are destroyed when he makes an inconsiderate—and about grave—botch. In any case, there’s something more to Mya’s cool hate… a history created with misfortune that becomes visible when another family arrives. With them is Lo, a foe from Mya’s past who Mya swears has ulterior intentions.
As Kol becomes acquainted with Lo, pressures amongst Mya and Lo raise until viciousness emits. Confronted with shattering misfortunes, Kol is compelled to scrutinize each individual he’s trusted. One thing is without a doubt: this was a war that Mya or Lo—Kol doesn’t know which—had been arranging from the start.
With riveting activity and illustrative writing that jumps from the page, newcomer Julie Eshbaugh will have perusers hypnotized.
