She has always been overlooked.
The Mark on her chest reminds her of the brand given to her at birth.
An brand that causes endless taunting and threats at school.
She hides herself. Never trying to stand up.
Even her sister hurts her.
Orphaned and alone, this is how Maya Dunsbrook lives. Discriminated and wondering why she's alive.
In a world where everyone is either human or Enhanced, there is peace and war. Peace, a veil from the government, and war, a rebellion to ensure equality. The rebels are human, and unable to control elements like the Enhanced. But among these Enhanced is the most powerful of them all: Alkhahest, the one that can control all elements, and is also immortal. But no one knows who it is, not even the original scientists. But Maya Dunsbrook knows because he saved her life. Now she knows a secret that is illegal and dangerous to keep.
She realizes how difficult holding this secret is, but despite who she has to keep it for, she has to keep it to protect her life. So to keep herself safe by avoiding him, or at least trying to.
But how difficult is it to avoid someone when you start developing feelings for them?
With a condescending sister, blossoming feelings between her and Alkahest, and threats bearing down on her, she doesn't know how she'll be able to survive or keep this secret any longer.
This is the world of the Enhanced.
