Book 2 in the Offspring Series: All her life, when Zoe Stoker got emotionally charged up, things started flying. Her mother convinced Zoe that she inherited the same demonic streak that caused her father to go mad and kill three people twenty years earlier. Zoe tightly controls her emotions while keeping people at a distance. Rand Brandenburg is a loner who’s been using his skills to see ten seconds ahead to up his odds at the casinos. His only friends are the graffiti artists he occasionally sees when he paints cartoons that poke fun at local politics. Those cartoons, done under the pseudonym Freedom, have made Baltimore’s anti-hero. Both Rand, the loner, and Zoe, the outsider, get recruited by the Rogues, a group of rebels all with super paranormal powers who are living in secret. Together with Amy, Lucas, Petra, and Eric (from a Perfect Darkness) they are the children of a government experiment gone horribly wrong. And now they are training to go up against an evil man at a high level in the CIA. To succeed, they must learn to become a part of a group, part of the family -- but after years of closing themselves off from love, Rand and Zoe must learn that out of the darkness they might just be able to find eachother.
