Sam wants to be an ordinary fourteen-year-old boy. But he's not. He is the victim of a terrible curse that has turned him into something to be hated. Homeless, parentless and a danger to his friends, Sam has gone into hiding. But what he doesn't know is that he is being watched; stalked by The Companions, a murderous cult who need Sam to fulfil an earth-shattering prophecy. And when they kidnap his friend, Adda-Leigh, Sam is drawn into a twisted world of barbaric rituals and ruthless ambition - where the only chance of survival lies in using the powers he hates...
