Seventeen year old Evie is a Shield, a product of a decades old experiment gone wrong who is bound by DNA to defend a Spark — who just so happens to be her best friend — from certain death.
While Evie comes to terms with her newfound abilites, she must also keep an eye out for threats that could come from anywhere, or else risk losing someone important to her.
The writing is sharp, fresh, and fast-paced, and it's a fantastic debut from a new author.
The second book in the series, Stray, is also available.
