Description

Saving the world once made them heroes. Saving it again might destroy them. A decade ago, five teenagers defeated the otherworldly enemy known as the Dark One, whose reign of terror brought widespread destruction and death. In order to save the world, Sloane, Matt, Ines, Albie and Esther were brought together by a clandestine government agency, because one of them was fated to be the 'Chosen One' - and they paid the price for their sacrifice. Ten years later, though the champions remain celebrities, the world has moved forward. But Sloane remembers. Sloane has had the hardest time adjusting. Everyone else blames the PTSD and her huge attitude problem but really, she is hiding secrets from them, secrets that keep her tied to the past and alienate her from the only four people in the world who understand her. It is impossible for her to forget when the paparazzi haunt her every step and the Dark One still haunts her dreams. On the eve of the Ten Year Celebration of Peace, a new trauma hits the Chosen Ones: the death of one of their own. When they gather for the funeral at the site of their triumph, they discover to their horror that the Dark One's reign never really ended, and are forced to reconsider what it means to be chosen.
