They would have been disbelieving: nobody dodged the split between Alpha and Omega. Nobody. Cass and Zach were born a perfect pair: no missing limbs, no Omega mutation - but Cass has a secret ... In her dreams she has seen the day they will be separated. She has felt the searing heat of the Omega brand as it is burned into her forehead, marking her fate for all to see. For years Cass hides her power of foresight from her family and brother as the eyes of the community bear down upon them: waiting for the day the Omega mutation appears. When Zach discovers Cass's secret he will stop at nothing to expose her and take his rightful place as an Alpha. As her twin rises through the ranks of power Cass must be locked away where no harm can befall her in order to keep him safe [or something] ... The power to change the world is in their hands: one will have to defeat the other if their vision of the future is to come to pass ... But Omega and Alpha twins share more than the moment of their births, if one twin dies, so does the other ..."@en ;
