But soon a group of religious fanatics, the Church of Light, notices that Emma’s brother Simon hasn’t aged past two - when he should be five. In the name of divine justice, the Church attacks both families, killing all but Emma and Charlie. Drinking the elixir makes one impervious to aging, but not to murder.

For the next 100 years, Emma wanders, avoiding the descendants of the Church even as she searches for a way to stop them. And always, she keeps an eye out for a certain seventeen-year-old boy whom she hopes is searching for her, too...
