Can the future ever erase the past?
Callie Rose has a Cross mother and a nought father in a society where the pale-skinned noughts are treated as inferiors and those with dual heritage face a life-long battle against deep-rooted prejudices.
Sephy, her mother, has told Rose virtually nothing about her father, but Rose unexpectedly discovers the truth about her parentage, with potentially devastating results. As Rose takes her first steps away from Sephy and into her father's world, she finds herself drawn inexorably into a dangerous, deadly game - a game of very high stakes that can have only one winner . . .
The dramatic and intensely moving third novel in the award-winning Noughts & Croses trilogy.
