Edge of Dystopia: Maelstrom (Edge of Dystopia Trilogy, Book One) (The Confined Unseen Series)
Darlene Coopersmith, a twenty-one-year-old allergic to restraint, stupidity, and Cyndi Lauper, has had a horrible week, and it's only three days in. Good sense tells her the universe isn’t through with her, and right she is. At first, she thinks the horrendous itching, lapses in memory, and overall body’s-been-put-through-a-meat-grinder feeling is due to an illness, but her assumption couldn’t be farther from the truth.
No, according to Darlene’s sister and best friend, the reason for Darlene’s discomfort is the Change: a process Wers go through to shift between their two forms. The news floors her. She isn’t human, and the two closest people to her have known for years. Her trust shaken, Darlene can’t help but wonder what other secrets they’ve kept from her.
And the secrets they have, especially Darlene’s sister, Mariah. When Mariah’s biggest secret rears its ugly head, everyone Darlene loves faces death. Like always, Darlene hurls herself into the danger, fists ready and thirsting for blood.

For Darlene Coopersmith, life with Uprising hasn’t been the easiest. The food leaves much to be desired, the rules make her feel like an accident-prone toddler, and the lack of available pirate biographies saddens her every time she enters the library. Worst of all, she despises Lisa Bani, Uprising’s leader and one of the main reasons Darlene’s family is dead. Darlene would do anything to make Lisa pay for the blood she’s shed.
For months, Darlene has fought and faked her way into Lisa’s inner circle. After a daring mission in Maine, Darlene cements her place amongst Uprising’s privileged. Then the hard work begins: she’s got to uncover information damning enough to topple Lisa.
Luckily, Darlene doesn’t have to wait long. Armed with a horrifying secret, and with the help from an unsuspecting ally, Darlene sets out to destroy Lisa and everything she stands for.

It doesn't matter that the world was falling to pieces or that the demons might have succeeded in slaughtering Jane even if he'd been extremely cautious.

But this young girl isn't what she appears, and their short journey is anything but easy. Can Ian get her to safety and embrace his atonement?
