Helen has lived her whole life as an outcast in her town. She is tall, super strong, and fast, not to mention gorgeous! So when a new family moves in that seem to have the same “problems” like her, she is immediately intrigued. Except, of course, when she sees them. Whenever Helen encounters any member of the Delos family, she is thrown into a murderous rage and then immediately gets terrible cramps. What she doesn’t know is why.
Suddenly, after Helen saves one of the boys’ lives, she doesn’t feel the urge to murder anyone anymore. Especially not Lucas, whom Helen can’t seem to stay away from. As she spends more time with them, she learns more about what they are – herself included. The Delos’ and Helen are one of the remaining few Scions – descendants of the gods. While Helen is developing her normal Scion talents, as well as a few extra rare ones with the help of the Delos’, she soon learns that no matter how badly she and Lucas want each other, they can never have each other or they will start an eternal war. And to make matters worse, Helen soon learns that the rest of the Delos’ relatives are coming to kill her. Will she be able to stop a war that will destroy civilization as we know it and herself?
