"In the not-too-distant future, the world was irrevocably changed when women mysteriously lost the ability to reproduce. Faced with humanity’s extinction, the Council of Creators was begun to find alternative methods of creating life. The resulting artificial beings, or Chosen Ones, were extraordinarily beautiful, unbelievably strong, and unabashedly deadly.
Life is bleak but uncomplicated for sixteen-year-old Tess until she begins work at Templeton, a Chosen Ones training facility, and she meets James. The attraction between the two is immediate in its intensity—and overwhelming in its danger.
But there is more to the goings-on at Templeton than Tess ever knew. Will she be able to stand up to her oppressors, even if it means giving up the only happiness in her life?
Tiffany Truitt’s debut, first in a new trilogy, is a searing look at how we define humanity, as well as a celebration of the dangerously wonderful feeling of falling in love."

stitches covering the small thing’s abdomen.
And the blood. It was everywhere. A memory whispered to me. I
had seen something like this before. Something to do with my father.
I couldn’t turn away, unable to deny what I saw. I noticed the dirt
and blood that lingered under its fingernails...."
Sounds good, eh??
Happy Teasers Everyone!!
