"History is on repeat, and things didn't go so well the last time. " Alexandria isn't sure she's going to make it to her eighteenth birthday--to her Awakening. A long-forgotten, fanatical order is out to kill her, and if the Council ever discovers what she did in the Catskills, she's a goner... and so is Aiden.
If that's not freaky enough, whenever Alex and Seth spend time "training"--which really is just Seth's code word for some up-close and personal one-on-one time--she ends up with another mark of the Apollyon, which brings her one step closer to Awakening ahead of schedule. Awesome.
But as her birthday draws near, her entire world shatters with a startling revelation and she's caught between love and Fate. One will do anything to protect her. One has been lying to her since the beginning. Once the gods have revealed themselves, unleashing their wrath, lives will be irrevocably changed... and destroyed.
Those left standing will discover if love is truly greater than Fate...
Teaser #1I tried to wiggle free, but he moved his leg, clamping one of mine between his. My fingers curled into his thermal. “Aiden”“Alex.”Frustrated, I pushed on his chest. Aiden’s laugh rumbled through me, and even though I wanted to smack him, I started to smile. “Why? Why did you kiss me? I mean, you did just kiss me, right?”“Yes. No. Sort of.” Aiden sighed. “I wanted to.”
Teaser #2Aiden screamed for help as he dropped beside me, knocking my trembling hands out of the way and pressing his own down on the wound. Aiden’s stricken face loomed over mine, his eyes wide with horror. “Alex! Alex, talk to me. Talk to me, dammit!”

The countdown clock reads ten days until the end of the world. The citizens are organized. Everyone's been notified and assigned a duty. The problem is . . . no one knows for sure how it will end.
Energy-hungry Mages are the most likely culprit. They travel toward a single location from every corner of the continent. Fueled by the two suns, each Mage holds the power of an element: air, earth, fire, metal, water, or ether. They harness their powers to draw energy from the most readily available resource: humans.
Ashara has been assigned to the Ethereal task group, made up of human ether manipulators and directed by Loken, a young man with whom she has a complicated past. Loken and Ashara bond over a common goal: to stop the Mages from occupying their home and gaining more energy than they can contain. But soon, they begin to suspect that the future of the world may depend on Ashara's death.
COUNTDOWN: 10 DAYS
Has it started?
This was my first thought every morning for the past nine months—ever since they’d told the public about the Vision, and about their plan. My pulse pounded in my ears. Red numerals blinked from the handheld communicator on my bedside table.
Ten days, four hours, twenty-one minutes until the end of all things we knew—or so the Vision said. The Council had warned us they’d cut it close. They would make every second count. And after all the seconds had been used up, they would rewind time and give it another shot.
I hoped the rewinds had started. They’d probably waited too long. It would be too late to change things.
A red alert light blinked on the communicator. My heart stopped beating and dropped into my stomach. I accepted the incoming message and watched text scroll up the screen:
“Ashara Vinn: We are now in the fifth timeline, after having performed four time rewinds. Based on your performance in the last timeline, you have been assigned to the Ethereal task force. Please report to the Council building immediately.”
The fifth timeline?
They’d said I wouldn’t remember what happened—only the elders would remember everything—but I hadn’t expected this. I’d gone to bed yesterday in the original timeline, and now it was the fifth. That meant I’d experienced these last ten days four times already. And apparently, the Council had failed to avoid the end of the world each time, or else the rewinds would have ended.
“You think it’s safe to go?” Krin whispered.Before I could answer, a boy I didn’t know flopped down beside me. I started to squeal, but he slapped his palm over my mouth.Krin’s hand shot out and grabbed his wrist. A soft blue light emanated from her grip.“Ow!” The boy yanked his arm back and scrambled away across the ground, out of Krin’s reach. “I’m trying to help you,” he hissed. He rubbed the reddened skin on his wrist where Krin had shocked him.
