But as Nova, her feelings for Adrian are deepening, despite the fact that he is a Renegade and the son of her sworn enemies and, unbeknownst to Nova, he has some dangerous secrets of his own.
The line between good and evil has been blurred, but too much power could mean the end of their city – and the world – as they know it.
