Picking up where Ransom of the Healer left off, Catryn “Cat” King struggles to find her footing in a new and complex world where humans with supernatural abilities are real—and not always what they seem.
Introduced to this realm by Nathan Alexander and his family, Cat is desperate to keep her life as a Seer undetected by the Visionaries as her relationship with Nathan develops.
But when evil creatures known as "the Fallen" threaten Cat’s safety and the security of those around her, she’s forced to leave everything behind to begin training with her uncle and his elite team.
As Cat grows into her abilities, she must decide between staying with the Alexander family she has grown to love or protecting them by turning away. Will her sacrifice be enough to prevent tragedy? Or will love be the death of her?
“She’s one of us. She just doesn’t know it yet.”
Catryn King has always been different. Her world was shaken at a young age when she lost both her mother and father in the same year. Left without parental influences as she entered into the world of adulthood and college, Cat chose to focus on her studies and her eventual career—shying away from close relationships. Then she met Nathan. Nathan leads Cat into a world she never knew existed—a world where supernatural abilities exist and the few who possess those abilities are faced with the choice of how to use them. Even amid all the strangeness, or maybe because of it, Cat begins to feel that maybe she isn’t as alone as she once thought. Ransom of the Healer chronicles Cat’s journey as she moves through grief into acceptance, and then into a strange and often confusing world where she must learn new rules. With Nathan at her side, can the two learn to trust each other enough to rediscover purpose in life?
