This isn't a world full of happy endings, but for one girl in particular it's a nightmare come to life. She didn't choose her parents, but that doesn't mean it doesn't affect her life; if anything, all anyone thinks about when they see her is how awful her father was. Not only that, but she's a spitting image of him, and that isn't easily missed. She also has her mother's amazing complexion and drawing skills, except she can't use the drawings in her magic. (Or CAN she?)
There's another problem too. Everyone is born with a magical power that appears one day out of the blue, or should I say, out of the gray. Before you get your power, your eyes are devoid of all color. (You can see color, but your iris is gray) But when your power comes to light, your eyes are colored with a color from the technicolor rainbow. But for Annalise, this is a problem. It's lucky her power includes being able to choose her eye color at any given time, because her main power is the most dangerous of all, one yet to have been found in anyone else. Annalise has to keep her power hidden, and prove to the Ky-Ka council that she can be trusted; all at the same time.
and if she doesn't succeed?
Let's just say, it may spell the destruction of not just all Annalise has ever known, but also the things that she may have opened up to a bit too much and began to... love?
