Brittany Quagan, known by family and friends as "Brittles," was born in Connecticut, twenty-something years ago and spent most of her life day dreaming like the stereo-typical Gemini she is.
When Brittany isn't teaching, counseling, or writing, you'll find her traveling with friends & family on a quest for adventure wherever she can, dying her hair every color of the rainbow, playing with her three nephews, trying craft beers, ruthlessly rating buffalo wings from all over the country, and talking to the moon. Most recently, she traveled to Alaska to dance on a glacier and bike down a mountain crying from hysterical laughter and extreme fear of plummeting to her death.
From foster kid to awkward teen, Ren Nagel has always wanted to be "normal." But, that's probably never going to happen. Ren is just a little more than human––she's an Implement sent to Earth to save the world. She knows what she's supposed to be doing, but for now, Ren is ignoring all the signs.
Bound by promises made a very long time ago, and with the help of her friends––some human, some not––Ren reluctantly sets out on an adventure that, if it doesn't kill her, will change her life––and everyone else's.
There are other Implements out there whose help she needs to keep humanity from destroying itself, but first she's got to find them. And then, she's got a few debts to pay with her old friend Karma ...
Seventeen-year-old Ren Nagel knows that the strange things she's seen are real--even if no one else believes her. But, when she's locked up in a psychiatric hospital; she loses hope that anyone will ever truly be on her side.
Then everything changes. With the help of a new friend, Ren breaks out. It's when she's on the run that she learns who she really is. Hunted by evil, Ren must learn to control a power she never knew she had, organize a coalition of people she never knew existed, and remind humanity why fighting the darkness is a big part of being human. Sometimes, feeling different is much more than just a feeling. For Ren, it means the fate of the world.
