Six years before the Day of Reckoning, before King Cyrus, magick was forbidden. Kahl Zimmerman, the bastard son of a tyrant ruler, has lost everything and everyone to the fear of what he is. Oracles of foresight are shunned and burned in a world surging with destitution and lies - every oracle but him. Kahl's only hope for redemption is lost to a cruel fate, and when a group of insurgents known as the Elehites invade the city, he is determined to wreak havoc on his enemies, even if he destroys himself.

In a world divided between the Hunters and the Warriors, the prisoners who have fallen prey to King Cyrus' decrees are forced into the arena to fight until death. The winner is granted mercy and the privilege to see another sunrise - for the loser, it's death unto the weak. Seventeen-year-old Princess Echo races toward freedom to find out who she really is and to put a world that has been swallowed by lies back together again.
Now free from the walls that confine New Haven, the place she had once believed to be her home, Echo must find a way to put an end to a war only she has the power to stop. She has yet to discover her true abilities as a hybrid leader, but what happens when the dreams that plague her become something more? Someone more?
The annihilation of New Haven was only the beginning. With King Cyrus on the run and a forbidden past yet to be discovered, Echo Abbeny is finding that her entire existence relies solely on one thing - the acceptance of her gifts as a hybrid and the godly abilities she can't even begin to understand or control. As they both vie for her heart, Ayden and Kahl are proving to be an even greater temptation than she could have ever dreamed of.
