      Imagine if you discovered, in the palm of your hand, the power to escape an ancient prophecy—the end of the world.
    But what if wielding this power meant leaving behind all you've ever known, all you've ever been, all that you love? What would you do?

    Asher Meadows has a secret—one he's so terrified of, he calls it his curse. For as long as he can remember he has possessed unexplainable, supernatural abilities. And for sixteen years he has kept them hidden. But when an elusive girl named Scar enters his village, Asher's life is forever transformed.

    Bound by mutual despair, the teens plot to run away together. However, when a sacred medallion finds its way into Asher's hands, they soon learn that running is not an option, it's imperative. In the wake of discovering the medallion, Asher is thrust into the pursuit of a legendary treasure, believed to possess an incredible power—the antidote for saving the world from foretold doom. Yet, for reasons Asher can't understand, the key to unlocking this power lies with the very mystery of his curse.

    Hunted by seething pirates bent on intercepting the medallion, Asher begins to realize that Scar has secrets of her own; she is not the girl he thought she was. Time is running out as he struggles to find the strength to let go of his feelings for her and summon the courage to embrace his destiny—a destiny that could save the world, but cost him everything...
