"I'm so sorry that I've given this burden to you." His voice is raspy and deep. After having a coughing fit, he grabs my hands and squeezes them. "You have to trust Alex and Nate." My eyes flick to them and back to my crumpled over father. "They will guide you through this." He says. "And don't ever give up on the rebellion." My heart races in my chest. "There are too many people counting on you to finish this for me." When everyone around Jessica Carter begins to die, she finds that the only person who has answers is someone she thought she would never have to face again; her ex best friend. As things go from bad to worse, she finds out that there's much more to life than money, good grades, and a sexy boyfriend; things that she read about when she was a kid but never believed in. With her Father's death, she finds herself picking fights with powers much greater than herself in a feeble attempt to save the souls of everyone she cares about most, and finds love with the last person she expects.
