On Eren Donovan’s sixteenth birthday she discovers she has access to a power that is latent in most humans. As if being orphaned and forced to live with an aunt she’s never met wasn’t bad enough, now she has to figure out what being a channeler means. Worse yet, the fate of channelers is tied to the fate of the world. Because it is slowly dying, so are they.
The tiny Colorado town of Spruce Knoll is populated solely by channelers from four different countries who immigrated there when they were driven out of their own lands. Not long after arriving Eren meets Aiden, an Irish boy who makes channelers seem more fascinating than frightening. With him Eren finds solace and a happiness she thought she’d never find again. Things get complicated when she and Aiden realize both of their parents’ deaths were not accidents. They become drawn into a dangerous game that could end in either justice for their parents' murders or their own deaths.
