As far as eighteen-year-old Rylee is concerned, every Elect deserves to have his eyes eaten out by rats and his entrails crammed down their own throats. In a time when most people fight just to survive, Rylee and her friends fight to protect Norms from the Elects, the neurologically-enhanced humans, who steal into the slums to rape girls and kill for sport. They wouldn’t have to if the Alliance, which governs the city, would lift a finger to protect the Norms. But when Rylee unwittingly kills the son of a high-ranking Elect, the Alliance retaliates. The result will make Rylee question everything, and put those she loves in danger. In the midst of her troubles, her life becomes entangled with a mysterious—and infuriatingly charming—Elect who comes to the slums seeking asylum. In order to save the ones she loves, she must ally herself with her enemy. Ultimately, she must decide between becoming the thing she most loathes or risk losing everything. A fast-paced, action-packed, kick-you-in-the-gut post-apocalyptic techno-thriller. Fans of Divergent, The Hunger Games, and The Maze Runner will not be disappointed.
