He attempts to kill the child, but her trusting nature sparks some long-lost humanity in him. Yet X remains a monster, and helping Tallie triggers a ferocious battle inside as he fights against his primal nature for her life--and his only hope of redemption. 

Meanwhile, Tallie confronts her true identity as crown princess, including grappling with the quickly-growing powers she inherits.
