Terra Underwood has always hated her world. She enjoys visiting the Pits, an underground arena where fighting is legal and bets are made. There, she will discover that the boy from her nightmares is real. But meeting him will lead her to a series of terrible events and a path she might never return from.
When a raid takes place in the Pits and Terra must run for her life, she finds shelter in the home of the boy from her nightmares. Along with him and the cyborgs within his home, Terra will discover that not everything is as it seems, and she has stronger connections to these bizarre characters than she could ever imagine. A cyborg with eyes made of fire, twins made of metal and a girl with a monster attached to her that seems to know much more than she says.
Now Terra must uncover the truth and her odd connection to these people. But sometimes the truth can be deadly, and Terra will soon discover that perhaps she should never have asked.
