    Prosper is the only unexceptional Redding in his old and storied family history - that is until he discovers the demon living inside him. Turns out Prosper's great-great-great-great-great-something grandfather made - and then broke - a contract with a malefactor, a demon who exchanges fortune for eternal servitude. And, weirdly enough, 4,000-year-old Alastor isn't exactly the forgiving type. The fiend has reawakened with one purpose - to destroy the family whose success he ensured and who then betrayed him.

    En mystisk sygdom dræber 98 procent af alle børnene i USA, og de resterende 2 procent viser sig at have udviklet en form for overnaturlige evner, som ingen helt ved, hvad indebærer, og de placeres derfor i forskellige aflukkede faciliteter. 16-årige Ruby undslipper med nød og næppe en af regeringens mest brutale testlejre og slutter sig til en gruppe andre teenagere på flugt fra systemet. Og på jagt efter svar. Liam, den lille gruppes leder, falder hårdt for Ruby, men hun kan ikke lade ham komme tæt på sig. Ikke efter det, der skete med hendes forældre.
