Keira's got problems. They're about to get worse.
Keira Wallace isn't trying to be special. She isn't trying to be normal. She just wants to survive high school without killing anyone. That's proving difficult. Her next best plan is escaping town. The trouble is, that's exactly what Aiden has in mind.
Aiden is a killer, trained to be ruthless and efficient. He's also Keira's genetic counterpart. When he takes her from home, he's hoping life will be easier. He couldn't be more wrong.
Keira wakes up with a new tattoo that brands her as the property of an arms manufacturer. As a genetically-engineered super-elite soldier, she'll never finish high school and good luck with that whole not killing thing.
Forced to fight for a company she despises, in a war she wants nothing to do with, this bewildered prodigy will be driven to the brink. If she jumps, everyone's going down with her.
Struggling to stay alive, and to retain her sense of self, Keira forms a tenuous bond with Aiden. But dreams of better things have no place on the battlefield.
Keira's about to learn what Aiden always knew: Nothing's fair in love and war, but everybody gets what they deserve.
