Product description

Can the future ever erase the past?

In a world divided by racial hatred, Callie Rose is imprisoned by her skin. Neither black nor white, she fits in nowhere – till the fight for equality draws her into a deadly game. Sephy, her mother, has told Rose virtually nothing about her father. As Rose grows up, she becomes determined to know more, and to honour both sides of her heritage. But her father’s family has a complicated history – one tied up with the fight for Nought equality. And as Rose takes her first steps away from Sephy and into this world, she finds herself drawn inexorably into danger. Suddenly, it’s a game of very high stakes; a game that can only have one winner…
