Tithely is a Seer among the Balancers. She is the only one who can see the Outsiders, a species that discards its female members. Tithely has always been taught that the role of Balancers is to keep order and create harmony between worlds. But when she unexpectedly discovers another realm--one the elders among the Balancers have been searching for for millennia--she is buried under an avalanche of hidden truths, including the real purposes behind the elders’ actions. Now Tithely must decide whether she will reveal that she is the One they have been waiting for - whether she will stay and contribute her power to those she has always loved and considered family, or become an outcast--powerful, yet alone.
