On the cusp of manhood in years yet still a boy, what Anthony Trollope called a hobbledehoy, charming Luke has enjoyed his extended adolescence of drinking and small-time cons.
Instead of choosing the good guy, I chose the bad guy. Instead of warding off the enemy, I moved in with him. And I thought the purpose of fear was to prevent you from doing stupid things.

Gaia Moore isn't like anyone else in the world. She's trained in ten different martial arts. She has a sharp mind, and an even sharper tongue. As a teenager she cut class to bust gang members and drug dealers on the streets of New York City. And now Gaia's been recruited to join the world's leading crime-fighting organization. At FBI training camp in Quantico, Gaia will become a part of an unparalleled team. She'll learn the strict codes and procedures of the FBI. She'll be pushed to her body and mind's utmost limits.

Every minute that passes with the killer on the loose puts more innocent women in danger.Gaia and Kim are closing in on the killer. But when all leads point to the same suspect, Gaia is thrown off balance — and into conflict with her partner. Because Kim's theories incriminate the one person she desperately wants to trust.
Catherine is dead. At least that's what the FBI claims. They say there's no point investigating the strange disappearance any further. Instead they want Gaia to stay in Quantico to carry on the search for the Lollipop Murderer.
There's been a murder. And it isn't part of some FBI training exercise. Late one night, in the middle of a rainstorm, Gaia and her roommate stumbled upon an actual killing. Since they were the only ones to glimpse the perp, headquarters has granted Gaia and Catherine temporary FBI badges to solve the case. Way to hit the ground running. But the investigation is not like a TV show. It's gruesome. It's frustrating. It's real. When the killer strikes again, they realize this isn't a one-shot deal either.
With Gaia's graduation from high school, Pascal's best-selling series comes to an end...only to be reborn again. Can you feel the fear? Gaia learned what it's like to feel fear - and it wasn't pretty. Now, just in time for her last few weeks of high school, she's back to her normal, fearless self. Unfortunately, everything else is far from normal. An evil business empire is trying to manufacture and sell anti-fear drugs to U.S. Army soldiers. Gaia wants to call in the CIA, but it's risky: It means playing by a whole new set of rules.
Back when I was fearless, it went like this: Gaia meets boy. Gaia falls in love with boy. Boy gets hurt. Now that I feel fear, it goes like this: Gaia meets boy. Gaia falls in love with boy. Boy gets hurt. Some things never change.
Now that she's "normal", Gaia knows that typical adolescent angst is one thing, but not going into a dark, deserted park late at night - that's just common sense. "Normal" girls know not to do that. Gaia had better learn that fact - fast.

In a moment of envy and desperation, Heather Gannis, Gaia's nemesis, allows Gaia's uncle, Loki, to inject her with the fearless serum - and it works, for a while. However, she is growing increasingly distracted and nervous. She approaches Gaia for help. But Gaia has been betrayed too often to let her guard down.
