extended summary:

People born with the Onus are either tasked to protect the world from the ruthless, evil, Sentients — harbringers of death and corruption — or join them. For Sentinels and Sentients alike, the mark of an Onus — and the power that came along with it — was another arsenal to their never ending conflict.

But for people like Sye McKenzie, the mark of an Onus was more of a curse than a blessing. Having been orphaned at such a young age, Sye barely makes it through his highschool without accidentally tormenting his bullies. His Onus — a large black Pentagram seared in his right wrist — was just another fuel to the fire.

However, things soon start to change during the night of his sixteenth birthday, when he comes home to find two men nearly destroying the wooden shack he had learnt to call home — both claiming to offer him a place in the world of the Sentinels or in the world of the Sentients.

In this battle between Morals and Power, Sye realizes there’s more to having an Onus than what meets the eye. As the conflict between Sentinels and Sentients slowly teeter into the cusps of war, Sye slowly unravels the mysteries surrounding him and in this new world of chaos.

And why everyone seems to be afraid of his Onus.

epigraph:

A gift can often be a curse. Give someone wings, and they may fly too close to the sun. Give them the power of prophecy, and they may live in fear of the future. Give them the greatest gift of all, powers beyond imagination, and they may think they are meant to rule the world.
