For Sam Ryan, life began at the age of fourteen. She has no
memory of her parents or her past. All she has is a crayon
drawing of a woman with the word "Mommy" scrawled underneath
in childish handwriting.
For the ten years Sam's been with the State Police, she's
used their resources to search for any clues to her
identity. But it's as if all mention of her family has been
deliberately wiped off the system, and no one seems to know why.
Everything changes the night she agrees to meet her missing
partner, Jack, and barely survives his attempt to kill her.
Charged with his murder and suspended from the force, Sam
finds herself accepting help from Gabriel Stern—a
shapeshifter with secrets of his own.
As Sam delves into her partner's death, she discovers more
than she ever bargained for. Because not only is her partner
very much alive, but he's involved in an organization that
plans a war on the human race. Worse, someone knows the
truth about Sam's past, and it appears that they'd rather
see her dead than have her uncover it.
The deeper she digs, the more the danger grows. It soon
becomes clear that the key to surviving the present lies in
unraveling the threads of her past—and in discovering not
just who she is, but what she is . . .
