I am tired of being used, hurt and cast aside.
Adelina Amouteru is a survivor of the blood fever, marked by a jagged scar where her left eye once was. Branded as a malfetto – an abomination – she is cast out from all she has ever known and loved.
Adelina finds sanctuary with other malfettos and discovers that the disease has left her with more than just a scar – she has a mysterious and powerful gift.
She is a Young Elite.
But Adelina's ability is stronger than any Young Elite before her. And unless she can control the vengeful darkness growing in her heart Adelina could be a danger to them all.
It is my turn to use. My turn to hurt.
