A fast-paced thrilling adventure, full of danger, romance, and deception-perfect for fans of Veronica Roth's Divergent series or Marie Lu's Legend.

As a normal girl surrounded by genetically modified teenagers, all of her imperfections are on display. But after the death of her father, everything she's ever known and loved changes in an instant.

With little skills to help provide for her family, Sienna clings to the two things that come easily-lying and stealing. But not all thief-for-hire assignments go as planned. When a covert exchange of a stolen computer chip is intercepted, she becomes entangled with a corrupt government official who uses her thieving past as leverage, her mother as collateral, and the genetically modified poster boy she's falling for as bait.

In order to rescue her mother, there may only be one option-joining forces with the Fringe, an extremist group, and their young leader who's too hot to be bad.

Editorial Reviews

"This book has everything I love in a young adult book: a strong, Harley-riding, brilliant female character, a captivating plot set in a vividly imagined futuristic city that I know and love (Las Vegas), and a scintillating romance that leaves me wanting more. It's a good thing that more has been promised in this series!"
