On the cusp of adulthood, Mandalyn is ready to shed all thoughts of her mentally unstable mother and take her rightful place among the greatest minds her society possesses.
When she learns the character level of her rival for top-in-class crests at ten, she knows she must confront him. Tens are the most dangerous level imaginable. When he confesses that her character level is also a ten, her mind is blown.
With the help of two other students with deadly character levels, they piece together what they know as they start to exhibit extraordinary abilities. With their new skills, they’re able to see the future. In one potential future, they die and in the other, they kill everyone.
