On a planet
where violence and vengeance rule, in a galaxy where some are favored by
fate, everyone develops a currentgift, a unique power meant to shape
the future. While most benefit from their currentgifts, Akos and Cyra do
not — their gifts make them vulnerable to others’ control. Can they
reclaim their gifts, their fates, and their lives, and reset the balance
of power in this world?

Cyra is the sister of the brutal tyrant
who rules the Shotet people. Cyra’s currentgift gives her pain and
power — something her brother exploits, using her to torture his enemies.
But Cyra is much more than just a blade in her brother’s hand: she is
resilient, quick on her feet, and smarter than he knows.

Akos is
from the peace-loving nation of Thuvhe, and his loyalty to his family is
limitless. Though protected by his unusual currentgift, once Akos and
his brother are captured by enemy Shotet soldiers, Akos is desperate to
get his brother out alive — no matter what the cost. When Akos is thrust
into Cyra’s world, the enmity between their countries and families seems
insurmountable. They must decide to help each other to survive — or to
destroy one another.
