Hi all! I'm new to this, so any advice would be much appreciated. I'll do my best to return the favor. Thanks in advance!
From the day eighteen-year-old BRIANNA CROSS sees GRAYSON, a stranger who is oddly familiar, she is plagued by a host of memories that never happened.
When her aunt SELENE recruits her to the Chronological Maintenance Department, a government agency from the future, it’s almost a welcome distraction. She trains to one day destroy Celosia, the city outside of time where genetically-enhanced criminals known as techies reside.
After killing a blip – the illicit children of the techies – in a fit of panic, Bree is consumed with guilt, and begins to listen to whispers of conspiracy from fellow agent CASPER. Before she has time to truly question the Department, her best friend is captured by techies. To rescue her, Bree has no choice but to accept help from ADDY, a girl from the same memories she is trying to avoid.
The mission goes awry, and Bree is captured. Grayson, who is a techie soldier, reveals the frightening truth about Bree: she is actually a blip. Grayson had given her a new identity for reasons he wouldn’t disclose, and her real name is AUBREY FALLON.
Bree is rescued by Addy and her brother Casper, who reveal that they are also blips, and bring her to their own town outside of time.When guilt forces Bree to reveal that she had killed a blip, she is shunned by the town’s residents. To make matters even worse, the woman she’d killed had been a vital part of an undercover mission on Celosia, and now another blip is in fatal danger.
Desperate to make things right, Bree, with Casper’s support, is allowed to join the blips’ rescue force. When she proves essential to the success of the mission, she regains some lost trust.
Bree’s sense of victory is short-lived; the rescue mission was merely a diversion. To cut off the budding alliance between the Department and the blips, the techies plan to frame the blips for assassinating an officer of the Department – Bree’s aunt Selene.
Bree rushes to her former home, only to find that a traitor in the blips’ midst had forewarned the techies of their arrival. Bree and her friends walk straight into a trap – the Department’s agents are waiting for them, and launch a vicious assault.
Worried for her aunt’s safety, Bree abandons the fight to run to Selene’s aid. Only then does she find out the truth – Selene herself is actually a techie, and has been working with Grayson to repress Bree’s memories.
Heartbroken and bewildered, Bree forces Selene to reveal her treacherous identity to the Department’s agents. A tentative truce is formed – then quickly unravels when the traitorous blip murders the nearest agent. An officer of the Department helps Bree and her friends escape, revealing that the Department is actually run by techies. The officer allies herself with Bree and the blips, and together they vow to free the Department from the techies’ control.
The web of lies that had entangled Bree’s life for so long is now finally unravelled. With her newfound old friends beside her and the support of Casper, whom she loves, Bree is no longer so afraid of her past – hopeful for the future.
