Four years ago, Rox awoke without a single memory and the involuntary ability to heal. Speech and most of her higher level cognitive functions were working, but everything about herself felt unfamiliar. Plagued by insecurity and confusion, she leaves the only home she can remember in search of her true identity.
Home. In tropical Southeast Asia, Rox has finally reunited with her family. No more dumpster diving, shelter hand-me-downs, and rules about living on the run. This is her chance to start over and to finally figure out who she’s meant to be. But even the orderly streets of Singapore can’t keep Rox safe. The scientist who experimented on her ten months ago discovers her new location and threatens to tear apart all she has fought and died for. With her loved ones under attack, the fragile relationships she has worked so hard on repairing fracture. She’s tempted to disappear, but she’s tired of running. Rox is finally ready to fight back, and she is willing to sacrifice everything to do so.
Even Rox’s ability to heal has limits. Halo’s efforts to save evolved ones is under threat by a new organization that isn’t interested in operating from the shadows. AmLife is a biotech company leading research on genetic manipulation. They announced they’re five years away from uncovering the genetic markers that activate evolved abilities, and their lead scientist, Dr. Clifford Tusk, knows just the EO to help advance their efforts.
Rox turns to Katherine for help, but she has her own crisis: Meita is missing. Rox joins the search for Meita just as Sam returns and AmLife shows up at Halo’s doorstep. Rox realizes the only way to save all EOs is to go public, but once her secret is out, there’s no turning back.
