Is the life of one intriguing mortal worth the end to a millennium of dreams?
When Evie, an immortal Watcher turned reluctant assassin, finds herself captivated by her intended target, Adan the Dreamer, is it worth the cost to prevent his untimely end?
Evie grows restless observing mortals from the safety of her desk in the Control Room. When the promise of a new life crumbles, a friend offers to smuggle her by portal into a booming metropolis called Shura. Evie jumps at the chance to see the world with mortal eyes. Secretly, though, she also hopes to observe Adan, a human Dreamer, in his natural habitat. Only a glimpse, she promises herself.
Adan curses the visions that plague his sleep. All he wants is to be normal: hang out with friends, take care of his little brother, and, most of all, not wake from a nightmare in the middle of history class. Adan's Guardian says his dreams reveal the future, but Adan refuses to believe he'll die at the end of a golden blade. Adan's life takes a curious turn when Evie, a beautiful stranger, sits next to him in the park. She doesn't seem to want to talk to him, yet eventually, she does.
Later, when Evie returns to the Control Room, she finds herself in a heap of trouble. Not only did she take an unsanctioned trip to the ground, but she also conversed with a human. When that boy, the Dreamer, turns up missing, all blame is placed squarely at Evie's feet.
Evidence soon places Adan in Sector Six, where Gifted humans and immortals are forbidden. Wearing a human body and wielding a golden blade, Evie is ordered to travel to this uncharted territory, find Adan, and take care of the problem. As she searches, she discovers that the boy was smuggled here for a reason, and perhaps the culprit-the Deceiver-is a threat to them all.
If Evie doesn't find Adan in the allotted time, the Control Room will seal her way home, banishing her alone and as a human until the slow grip of mortality should claim her.
