My heart was beating against my rib cage as I stared over the cliff edge. The moonlight glinted off the water below, but that's not what I was thinking about. I imagined missing the water altogether and splatting like a ripe tomato against the rocks. They all said it was safe, but with my coordination I was pretty sure I could find a way.
Hoping I could keep at least a hair of dignity, I stood at the ledge another few seconds, but I had already made up my mind. I was not going to jump no matter what Becky Sanford said. I hoped that stepping away from the ledge would allow my pulse to slow and my face to regain some color.
It was stupid of me to put myself in this type of situation again. I had done it before and it never ended well. Heights were not my thing, along with about another hundred fears. Becky had told me once that I was the least fun friend she had. I think the only reason that she ever invited me to these types of things was to have someone to make fun of.
Symone Foster wants only to stay in her 'nothing ever happens' life with her best friend Saul Cohen. She has no idea what's being offered when three out-of-towners show up to invite her to a Lazarite training program. Reluctantly, she accepts and finds herself in a floating city surrounded by a competitive school of teens who can resurrect after the moment of their death, something that seems to happen much too often for her taste.
Tension grows as Lon Blackstone, her mentor and secret crush, begins to take a special interest in her. It's clear, however, that his full acceptance is impossible as long as she refuses to endure even one session of death training. She must overcome her debilitating fear if she wants to take her place alongside Lon, her teammates, and the rest of the Lazarite family.
