Sometimes, heroes are born. Other times, they have to go through hell before earning the title.

Audrey's always felt there's more to life than being stuck in the same old 9-5 routine. When a black-clad stranger says she meets the criteria for his recruitment program, she can't help but be intrigued. The fact that he's from nine hundred years in the future only adds to the appeal.

Hound has been searching for the ancestors of the Order his entire life. The power to heal the earth resides in their blood, and they are all that stands between humanity and starvation. With reports of entire parties of healers vanishing, the Seekers buckle down to keep their ladies safe. But protecting Audrey isn't an easy task, not when her uncontrollable talents only paint a target on their backs.

Audrey's survived this far, but her greatest trials are still to come.

After barely escaping the attack on the Institute, Audrey is carving out a new life for herself and her twins. But saving the world isn’t easy while living on the run, juggling motherhood, and leading a nearly extinct Order of healers. When Audrey discovers that members of the Order of the Leaf long thought dead are being held captive, she makes it her mission to find and free them.

The rescue plan is solid and Audrey’s determined to let nothing distract her. Not her babies. Not their father, Ace. And especially not Hound, the tainted Seeker she marked with her intimately protective magic. But before it’s all said and done, Audrey will have to face the hard truth that sometimes you must choose between your duty, your family, and yourself. 
What began as an uneasy peace has brought about a new era. Men no longer fight over moldy scraps, thanks to the revived Order of the Lily. Sixteen years after their rescue, the half-breeds of the Order have proved themselves to the world and earned their place in society. 

However, not everyone is at peace within the Order’s walls. The children of the Lillies are bound by birth to their destiny—carrying on the bloodline to ensure the future of humanity. While most accept their life of luxury in exchange for their duties, the burden doesn’t sit well with everyone.

Unhappy children are the least of the Order’s problems. Zaddicus, the mastermind behind the Order’s disappearance all those years ago, is still at large. His new plans threaten to blow open everything the Surfacers think they know about the world, and this time, he has children of his own.

What dangers lurk beneath the surface?
The river feeding the farmlands has been tainted, destroying all it touches. Brana and the Order's considerable abilities are having little effect on the poisoned waters. Zeche's rag-tag band of Watchers struggle to keep the peace as emptying granaries throw the populace into a panic.

As all-out war with the Dwellers looms, the Surfacers are fighting for their world with everything they have. Brana and the half-breeds search for a cure for the river while Stryker and the Watchers develop a hail-Mary plan that may not actually work. Hound is founding a resistance in Paxi to undermine Zaddicus' control from within. They've been fighting for decades, yet all they've managed to do is lose ground.

Zaddicus has out-played them, and this time, maybe for good. The villain has gotten bolder, sending his heir to the surface to take down the resistance-and her brother- once and for all.
