For as long as seventeen-year-old Rowyn Jacobs can remember, he has been the monster that’s laid waste to the small New Hampshire town of Maple Creek. Cursed with the ability to burn anything that gets too close to him, he has forever known the world to be a lonely place. It’s only when it’s revealed to him that the mysterious Alara Blake, a girl he’s known all his life, has abilities of her own, that Rowyn learns the true nature of their world.
Now, thrust into a world-at-war, Rowyn must come to terms with a life where he’s the last of his kind, where there are secret towns inside of towns, and where people will do whatever it takes to get their hands on the power he holds inside. Once a monster, Rowyn must become a soldier to defend the world from the true beast lurking in the shadows.
