DIVERGENT meets OCEAN’S EIGHT in this urban fantasy heist!
On my seventeenth birthday, I wake up in the hospital to find I just survived a sketchy but terrible accident. My parents stand by my bedside—both are beautiful, wealthy, and super-nice. They tell me that once I leave the hospital, I’ll attend the prestigious ECHO Academy, where I’ll churn out equations for the government along with my mega-smart peers.
So, I’m living the perfect life.
Then why does everything feel all wrong?
My parents, my house and even ECHO Academy…none of it fits. Plus, what’s up with Thorne, my brooding yet yummy classmate who keeps telling me I need to remember my true past, which seems to have included a lot of us kissing? That’s one thing I’d really like to remember, except for the fact that I’m pretty sure Thorne is hiding a ton of nasty secrets of his own, including the fact that he may not be from this world. But considering how my own past seems alien to me, it’s not like I can judge. Plus, Thorne has dimples. That’s a problem.
And worst of all, why does it feel so yucky to work on these calculations for the government? It’s all supposed to be part of ECHO, but my heart tells me that I’m helping something truly terrible come to pass. Thorne seems to think that kissing him again will release my real memories.
Maybe it’s time to pucker up.
“Appealing and engaging. Love the strong female character!” – Arlene’s Book Reviews

This new series is perfect for: fans of urban fantasy, action & adventure, cool science, evil corporations, forbidden romance and hot new classmates who may or may not be aliens.


Wow, this was one hell of a book. :) I just finished it and my thoughts are nowhere coherent. I knew from reading prequel that it will be amazing & was super hyped about it, but the story just blew my mind. :)

Wisteria wakes up in a hospital bed and the creepy doctor explains how she lost all her memories because of the accident and has to work for him on his super evil plan. She is guarded by Thorne who seems very familiar and goes for hot to cold all the time. Seeing the evilness of doctors plan she agrees to help him and forms a little side plan herself. She assembles a team, but it's not all smooth sailing. They are hardly a team at first, the doctor keeps interfering, crazy emperors are lurking, and there is always a chance from the plan to fail. No to spoil anything, but the ending is epic. :)

There is lots of sciency stuff (my favorite), loads of scheming, secret plan, plans within plan... so many plans 😁(another favorite thing), non-stop action and so many twists and turns, and romance... ahhh... 💚

One of the best books I've read this year ... 💚💚💚

Highly recommend it!

Happy reading,
