Settling into her second year in the city of Eidolon, Alex is finally ready to live, to spend time with her friends, and to explore an afterworld in which she learns something new each day. But her life isn't quite perfect. It seems certain classmates are determined to unearth Alex's history. With each new piece of information that comes to light she is buried deeper and deeper in controversy. Until now, the living and the dead have always existed harmoniously apart from one another, but there are gifted humans who can see spirits and some of them believe Alex to be their slain civil leader. When they begin to break down the barriers that protect the city, the afterworld becomes vulnerable to exposure, and all fingers point to Alex. Clear lines have been drawn in the sand, and Alex doesn't know whether to stand with the living or the dead. It seems both sides want to use her for their own gain. What they don't realize is that neither side will want her when they find out who she really is.
