But when he tells her he can help control it, she's more than interested. There's just one catch: Ember has to trust Hayden's adopted father, a man she's sure has sinister reasons for collecting children with abilities even weirder than hers. But when Ember learns the accident that turned her into a freak may not have been an accident at all, she's not sure who to trust.
