Dear Fantastic Agent X:
Eighteen-year-old Cecily never set out to be a villain, but when her sister’s so-called suicide leaves all fingers pointing at one man, she’s frustrated to find she’s the only one screaming “murder.”
Initially, she’s hesitant to take matters into her own hands, but the man in question is Mister Universal, the beloved, self-proclaimed king of the five major galaxies -- and little-known murderer of the rightful Queen. His absolute power is threatened only by his tenuous hold on the super-powered Watchers, whose voices have coached an oblivious Cecily for years. After her sister’s death, Cecily unknowingly activates her own powerful, though unstable, Watcher Skills, earning her a spot in their ranks second only to the old Queen’s son himself -- as well as catching the unwelcome attention of Mister Universal.
Unfortunately, Mister Universal’s latest plan to regain Watcher obedience involves Cecily’s death -- through a very public, painful execution.But, before the execution can occur, new information about her sister’s death pushes Cecily over the edge, and the mistakes she makes during her search for justice accidentally turn her into the universe’s most-wanted. Caught between an angry, misled public and the betrayed son of the old Queen, Cecily faces the fight for her life as she tries to find out the truth about her sister’s death.
