Vasic is an Arrow who feels no emotions. Tasked with protecting an E-psy he quickly realizes she is awakening his emotions. Ivy Jane is an empath who had to rebuild her life after treatment for her broken silence. She now is tasked with finding a way to save the Net. She is also determined to save Vasic and make him realize how special he is. 

“Flaws make us who we are, Ivy. Without them, we might as well be made of plas, featureless and indistinct. Never ever be ashamed of your flaws.”

I loved these two! They had a slow building relationship that was just perfect to me. Vasic has basically given up on his life. The Arrows, mainly Aden, put him in charge of the E’s hoping it will awaken his emotions again and make him want to live. I really loved how the Arrows were like a giant family and while they may still be silent they also protected each other. 

“You’re my hope, Ivy, my beacon home on the darkest night.”

Ivy Jane has always had flawed silence. She doesn’t understand why until she is told she is an empath. Now she is determined to embrace her abilities and save as many people as she can, especially Vasic. I adored Ivy. She was such a sweet woman with a protective streak. I loved how she kept pushing Vasic to embrace his feelings and not to give up on life.

The focus of this book is on the E-psy and their fight to stop the infection in the PsyNet. The Psy are still struggling to deal with the fall of Silence, including a new pro-silence group, Silent Voices. While scared, quite the Psy are starting to embrace their new emotional freedom. I am very excited about where this plot is going. I can’t wait to see where Singh is going to take the plot line, especially since all the different races are finally starting to cooperate.
