Tenley is an average 17 year old girl who has spent the past 13 months locked inside the Prynne Asylum. The reason? Not her obsession with numbers, but her refusal to let her parents choose where she'll live-after she dies. FIrstlife is merely a dress rehersal, and real life begins after death. In the Everlife, two realms are in power:Troika and Myriad, longtime enemies and deadly rivals. Both will do anything to recruit Tenley, including sending their top Laborers to lure her to their side.
