A coming of age novel about a girl who has it all.
STEPHANIE CARTER is a fifteen-year old freshman who has everything. Whether she’s studying, playing soccer or dancing, Steph gives it one hundred and ten percent. At home, she’s starting to feel the pressure as her family falls apart. Her mom is moody, her little brother is a mess and she’s not feeling like Daddy’s little Princess anymore. She feels the sting of his disapproval as her busy life takes her farther away from the family unit. Her mom accuses her of being a Prima Donna, and Steph comes to the startling conclusion that her parents have been fighting, a lot, about her. If they get a divorce, it’ll be her fault.
She masterminds a date for the upcoming dance, juggling her lead role in the musical as well as soccer championships. An ex-friend of their group sabotages Steph at every opportunity, but she just works harder to make up the difference. Her friends wonder if their exhaustion at the end of freshman year is worth it. It’s her job to keep everyone else motivated. Her stomach hurts and she can’t eat. If she isn’t perfect, she’ll fail. Not happening.
She gets injured in a soccer game and her doctor questions Stephanie’s rigid mind set. Stuck in a wrist cast, with her leg in a brace, Steph feels like her life is over. Especially since the injuries aren’t enough to bring her dad home, and her mom is acting crazy – which gets worse once the doctor diagnoses anorexia.
The disease, so sneaky she wasn’t even aware of it until her life started falling apart, is about control, about the illusion of perfection – and Steph needs to re-learn how to live.
The alternative is dying.

Weordan is a world of apothos. The chemistry of glowing yellow blood sustains life and drives technology. Apothos is a personal technology practiced by apothynom, talented men and women who train their whole lives to build their metabolic capacity and hone their skill at directing that energy in novel ways. They construct apothic machines called emetanisms, mostly as tools to enhance their personal apothic capacity, but also to perform simple tasks in place of apothic effort.
Alcander, an old man with a decrepit body and shattered sense of self, has a murderous plan to seize power and replace the life he cannot remember. Investigating a body with bizarre wounds fished from the bay are a middling apothynom, Inspector Paulos Gaent, and a religious objector to apothynom rule, Clerk Teria Bellaphaerenous. At cross-purposes, a private detective, Laros Nero, is hired by an anonymous client to discover the identity of the murderer for reasons other than justice. However, it will take more than keen investigative abilities to stop Alcander. It will require the unearthing of dark apothic knowledge that has been buried for an age.
