But when Claren is identified as an Empath at her aptitude test, she's pulled closer to the Center and discovers the world she’s always known is a lie. With the help of a handsome and mysterious rebel, Claren learns there is more to life than what's inside the city walls. And the Leadership she's always trusted is dead-set on destroying it. Claren must stop the Leadership before they discover the secrets she now keeps. Her life... and everyone else's... depends on it.
