Some things can't be cured, can't be stopped, can't die ...

Don't miss this startling second book in a breathtaking new trilogy from Teri Terry, queen of the teen thriller and author of the bestselling SLATED trilogy.

An epidemic is sweeping the country.
You are among the infected. There is no cure; and you cannot be permitted to infect others. You are now under quarantine.
The 5% of the infected who survive are dangerous and will be taken into the custody of the army.

With Shay gone, Callie has no way of communicating with her brother Kai. But together they must discover the origins of the disease.

As the epidemic becomes ever more widespread and survivors are being hunted like witches, speaking out is making Kai the new number one target. And he's running out of places to run.

From the author of the international sensation Slated comes the second book in a powerful new story of survival and transformation; love and power.
