Eighteen year old Marissa has spent her entire life hidden away in a secret underground compound known only as the Organization.  She has never felt the sun on her face or the wind in her hair.  Instead she has been isolated, groomed, and tormented by Director Samuel Klein.  That is until an oversight brings her face to face with Michael-an encounter that promises to change everything.

Michael has spent years believing that Marissa was murdered by the Organization.  The truth that she is not only alive, but has been within his reach knocks him back, but not for long.  Despite years of conditioning and brainwashing, Michael has managed to resist the Organizations efforts to rewire his mind, refusing to be turned into a callous mercenary.  All while keeping a secret of his own from the Organization. 

When the opportunity to escape suddenly presents itself he vows to take Marissa with him, setting a tumultuous turn of events into motion.  You see, Marissa also has a secret.  She has a daughter that Samuel uses against her, in order to keep her biddable.  

For years, Samuel has subjected unwanted children that he's stolen from the foster system, to various experiments.  The serum that he's perfected over the years has the potential to either give superhuman abilities.  Those who survive become Nova Soldiers.  Those who do not become Drones.  

Is Michael willing to risk everything for a girl who barely has any memory of him?  Is the promise of freedom worth the risk of losing Marissa's daughter to a man who could turn her into a weapon?  With the help of some unlikely ally's, Marissa and Michael set out on a quest that will test their strengths.  They'll have to work together or their power could destroy them all.  In the end, they'll discover if love really does conquer all, or if it will lead to their defeat.
