  About The Book

When Wisty and Whit were imprisoned by the wicked forces of the totalitarian regime known as the New Order, the Allgood siblings were barely able to escape with their lives. Now part of a hidden community of teens like themselves--hunted by the state and determined to defy its oppression of life, liberty, and the pursuit of being a normal teenager--Wisty and Whit have now established themselves as leaders of the Resistance, willing to sacrifice anything to save kids kidnapped and brutally imprisoned by the New Order.

After one of their best friends is executed by the ruthless Leader, the One Who is the One, Wisty and Whit resolve to stop at nothing to bring down this evil regime and fight for their parents. But the One has other plans in store for them: He needs Wisty, for she is "The One Who Has the Gift"--but the siblings will have to master their evolving magical powers and risk their lives time and time again to find out just what that means.

Wisty and Whit's suspenseful adventures through Overworld and Shadowland lead to a jaw-dropping climax and conclusion: the highly-anticipated fulfillment of the heart-pounding opening prologue of book one... The Execution of the Allgoods.
