Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0983129797, Paperback)How hard do you have to shake a family tree to find out the truth about the past? Fifteen-year-old Rae Kerrigan never questioned her family’s history. That is until she accepted a scholarship to Guilder Boarding School in England. Guilder is an exclusive, gifted school. Rae has no idea what she is getting herself into or that her family’s past is going to come back and taunt her. She learns she is part of an unparalleled group of individuals who become inked with a unique tattoo (tatu) on their sixteenth birthday. The tatu enables them to have supernatural powers particular to the shape of their ink-art. Both of her parents were inked, though Rae never knew, as they passed away when she was young. Learning about her family's past, her evil father and sacrificial mother, Rae needs to decide if there is a ray of hope in her own life.

Not until she accepts a scholarship to a boarding school for gifted students in England does Rae Kerrigan learn she is a member of a special group who at age sixteen are inked with a unique tatu that gives them supernatural powers related to the shape of the tatu--nor has she known that her evil father and sacrificial mother--both dead--were inked as well.
