Your destiny is not your own. The government has decided who you will be, who you will date, where you will work,if you will prosper or if you will perish. And the government will execute those who disobey. But who is watching the government?
Dax and Madden are teenage girls raised on opposite ends of this seven-ring spectrum. Dax's destiny is to live as an Ash, society's outcast, and will live out her life in squalor. Madden is a purple, or Ultraviolet, society's royalty and destined to rule as Minister. Dax and Madden's destinies have prescribed from birth--but fate has something else in store for them. Soon Madden and Dax will find themselves united when a catastrophic event forces these two young women to question their own pasts, present and future, as they realize that who they will be is not necessarily who they were born to be.
ASH, the first book in the "Destined" series, is an unforgettable journey into an alternate future, which will leave readers breathless while wondering just how close Dax and Madden's futures are from our own. Everyone has a destiny. Will you fight for yours?
