When Lucy woke up she didn’t open her eyes, out of fear of what she would see before her. Then she thought, maybe it was just all a dream. Her eyes fluttered open and again she saw, out in the water, the wreckage of the plane that had only today carried her, her family, and 22 other innocent passengers. Scratch that, 21 innocent passengers, Lucy wasn’t even sure the terrorist counted as a person. All had died, except her, was it a blessing, no. A curse, that was a possibility, for now she sat, alone and afraid, on an island that she guessed to only be about 3 miles in diameter.
The start of this book begins with a boy who is just about 17 years old named Lucas. He works as a mechanic and is a high drop out. He discovers his power, after he is stabbed in the stomach and there was no wound to be found. Just a little later after this, he meets this man who claims to be his father and that he is the Raptor (A superhero that was currently protecting the city of Seraph). Lucas refuses to see his father, but later Lucas's trailer park is destroyed and burned to flames. Many people died in the attack including his mother.
