Natural genetic evolution is on the rise, and dividing society by blood status and purity. Katie Pierce and Adair Rose come from conflicting worlds, political ideals and social prejudice.

Katie is a Divitiae – a person with desirable blood – and the oldest of her kind. Adair’s father, Senator Rose, has been recently sentenced to life in prison for attempting to cull those with impure blood.

Despite the longstanding rivalry between their circles, conflicting ideals and reputations, Katie and Adair form a secret and forbidden friendship. Their final year at school demands a lot of responsibility. Once she turns 18, Katie must become the official political face for the Divitiae community; while Adair is expected to fill the shoes of his extremist father.

Unbeknownst to their family and friends, Katie and Adair are crumbling under pressure. Katie is more interested in partying and being with her boyfriend than politics. And Adair, through his relationship with Katie, is gradually learning he may not share his family’s ideals.

Over the year, the pair grows to truly care for each other. But a political war is brewing, and Katie and Adair each have a role to play. How will this affect their friendship – and who will survive?
