Shattered (The Hexon Code, Book 1)
A teenage orphan. A draconian academy. Harrowing truths. Can she stop the director’s evil plan before her friends become victims, too?
Fifteen-year-old Marris Sheffield is clear about one thing: she is stuck within the confines of the orphanage’s heavily fortified grounds for another three years. But after a mysterious illness sweeps across the academy and multiple deaths occur, Marris’ fate is sealed forever. Because… she’s dead.
But Marris knows her illness and death were no accident. And she’s hellbent on revenge. The trouble is, as she begins to learn the chilling truth about the place she has called home for seven years, she realizes the complexity of the academy’s evil plan.
Now she will be forced to choose between seeking revenge and saving her friends. With her moral dilemma looming overhead, the chance at either may just slip from her grasp.
Will Marris save her friends before the flames erase all the evidence? Or will her revenge grant her an eternity of wandering the academy’s blackened halls?
