Do you know what it feels like to die? Alastrina Byrne does; She dies all the time. She has felt the pangs of starvation, the wounds of being stoned and the burn of fire behind cries of “witch”. Yet she cannot reach her true death; She is a three-century-old Imati … with the face of a seventeen-year-old girl.
Ally is on the run from Seeker assassins — a secret brotherhood determined to kill her kind – and a sorceress whose ancient prophecy threatens her very existence. Forced to flee and pack up her life for the umpteenth time she moves cross-country to a hide out in a small but quirky town — Belfast, Maine.
Ally just wants to be “normal” — but she is haunted by the mistakes of her past. However, Belfast and its residents are different and for the first time in years she finds herself making friends. What’s more, for the first time in a century, she meets a boy—Connor Winfield.
But Connor has secrets of his own – secrets that could get Ally killed. And the two of them together will change everything.
Set in a world of immortals, Souljumpers, Seekers and ancient prophecies … with flashbacks to 1740′s Ireland, the French Revolution, 19th Century Chile, a Slave ship bound for the New World and beyond … this is a journey about choices and how the decisions we make in the past, have consequences in our future.
