In 2167, prisoner rehabilitation has taken on a new name––Redeemed. Pure Souls have been grown and programmed to erase the damaged souls of the Condemned. Once injected, the Pure hunts down the original soul in what is called the Soul Wars.
What looks like a routine Soul War for Keeper, Hayley Seger, turns out to be anything but. Prisoner 53231, not only remembers his name, but who he was. “Help me,” he begs––his one eye the blue of the Pure and the other, the original grey he was born with. Two Souls in one body. His Soul War was not over.
Hayley, with an already growing distrust of what she and her bosses at Aphelion are doing, covers up the botched Soul War. Their lives take a dangerous turn as they search for a way to save Vaughn, and uncover dark truths about Aphelion––truths that will change everything and leave both of them running for their lives.
People they love are threatened, betrayals are uncovered and choices are made. And in the end, all that is left to do is run––and survive.
