Once Julianna learns the shocking truths about the New Regime, she and Declan retreat to Abraham’s rural property and begin working with the Apostasy, a group of rebels seeking to overthrow the New Regime. They must be careful about their movements since Guardian Costma, the leader of the New Regime, is still searching for them. Through their adventures, they meet Colin, Declan’s Warrior brother, who is very close to Guardian Costma’s daughter Delilah. Will Colin and Delilah help or hurt them? With their newfound freedom, the two Scholars must learn to make decisions for themselves, everything from how to spend their free time to what they mean to each other going forward.
While still trying to remember where her father had hidden his Project Mnemosyne and if it even still exists, Julianna and her team prepare to launch an assault on the New Regime, using their brain power as their greatest weapon.
