To Chloe's dismay, Valentina informs her that, although the teenager has nine lives, each death becomes more painful than the one before. Chloe also learns that, if The Order's assassin cannot be stopped, she will be forced to leave her family and friends. Can the Mai protect Chloe, or will she be forced into hiding where it is possible she'll never see her loved ones again?
