On the surface, Ashlyn Woods seems like the luckiest girl in the world. She goes to college in one of the most beautiful spots in the United States. She’s found her soulmate, Kai, a totally hot guitar player who is madly in love with her. Her roommate, Rebecca, is the best friend she’s ever had. And most amazing of all, Ashlyn found out that she is a Soterian, a person who develops special powers to restore the balance of good and evil, enabling her to generate fire, become invisible, and fly. But deep down, she is haunted by a past she can’t seem to leave behind. While she and the other Soterians battle a drug ring that is selling a powerful and highly dangerous new drug, Ashlyn must also battle her inner demons . . . and the dark secret that threatens to consume her.
