But I had a name once. I was Allura until the Wardens captured me.
They told me I was a Nameless. That I was no one, and my sole purpose was to obey them. And, for a while, I believed them.
I spent years living underground in the channels beneath the city, dreaming of being outside again. I never thought it would happen. That I'd die in the darkness of my cell.
But then three guys show up in the channels and my fate suddenly changes.
Blaise, Ryder, and Reece are part of a secret group working to take down the Wardens and help rescue the Nameless. For the first time in a long time, I feel like I might survive.
But the outside world isn't like how I remember. The city has become even more dangerous, especially for the Nameless. To survive, I'll have to learn how to trust the guys and live in a world full of crime where almost everyone is hunting for me.

I shut my eyes and picture a different world. I can almost feel the warmth of the sun, taste the clean air, hear the lull of a river flowing. The place in my mind has to be real. I was there once, outside, far away from the corruptness and the darkness of this cell. I had a mother and father. At least, I think I did. It’s so hard to remember sometimes—a lost life, a different world. But there has to be more. I can feel it. I just wish I knew if the other world was better. I wish I could find the hop...
