Anastasia Phoenix has always been the odd girl out, whether moving from city to city with her scientist parents or being the black belt who speaks four languages --- and most definitely as the orphan whose sister is missing. She’s the only one who believes Keira is alive, and when new evidence surfaces, Anastasia lands in the middle of a massive conspiracy. At her side is Marcus, the bad boy who’s as secretive as she is.

She will find her sister.
