Sophie Foster doesn’t know what—or whom—to believe. And in a game with this many players, the worst mistake can be focusing on the wrong threat.
But when the Neverseen prove that Sophie’s far more vulnerable than she ever imagined, she realizes it’s time to change the rules. Her powerful abilities can only protect her so far. To face down ruthless enemies, she must learn to fight.
Unfortunately, battle training can’t help a beloved friend who’s facing a whole different danger—where the only solution involves one of the biggest risks Sophie and her friends have ever taken. And the distraction might be exactly what the villains have been waiting for.
This time we win. It was Sophie’s only thought, even as the world around her fell into shadow and chaos.
Even as the Neverseen revealed their next move—their next twist in this deadly game.
A game Sophie had lost over and over again.
But this time she was ready.
This time she’d trained—and so had her friends.
This time, they knew how to fight back.
So Sophie’s hand didn’t shake as she reached for one of the throwing stars she’d learned to carry.
And she knew exactly where to aim.
But . . . things weren’t always as they appeared.
And as everything flickered and faded, as her friends shouted and struggled to understand . . .
Illusion was her enemy’s new secret weapon.
