Ari can’t help feeling lost and alone. With teal eyes and freakish silver hair that can’t be changed or destroyed, Ari has always stood out. And after growing up in foster care, she longs for some understanding of where she came from and who she is.
Her search for answers uncovers just one message from her long dead mother: Run. Ari can sense that someone, or something, is getting closer than they should. But it’s impossible to protect herself when she doesn’t know what she’s running from or why she is being pursued.
She knows only one thing: she must return to her birthplace of New 2, the lush rebuilt city of New Orleans. Upon arriving, she discovers that New 2 is very…different. Here, Ari is seemingly normal. But every creature she encounters, no matter how deadly or horrifying, is afraid of her.
Ari won’t stop until she knows why. But some truths are too haunting, too terrifying, to ever be revealed.

Now why didn’t someone – anyone speak up and say this is AKA KELLY GAY! I adore Charlie Madigan! I downloaded this one from NetGalley and it wasn’t until I went to check it out on Amazon that I read the small print. Kelly Keaton also friended me on GoodReads, and I let her know I had the book but didn’t get to it yet. Now, I HAVE to read it.
