Based on the book series by Celia Thomson, Skyler Samuels will play a girl who learns she has special powers.Chloe King is looking forward to celebrating her birthday with her friends and single mother, just like every other year… that is until she starts developing heightened abilities and discovers she's being pursued by a mysterious figure. Chloe soon learns she's part of an ancient race which has been hunted by human assassins for millennia —and that she may be their only hope for ultimate survival.
A smart, pretty, slightly offbeat teen girl who lives alone with her single-mother suddenly discovers her destiny is far greater than she could have ever imagined.
Still getting used to her new powers, Chloe can't get past the fact that she is responsible for Xavier's death. Will she be able to handle not just her newfound abilities but the life-altering limitations it puts on her relationships with others?
Just as it seems Chloe is getting used to her new found responsibilities as The Uniter, she is forced to meet Valentina, the leader of the San Francisco Mai. To Chloe's dismay, Valentina informs her that, although the teenager has nine lives, each death becomes more painful than the one before. Chloe also learns that, if The Order's assassin cannot be stopped, she will be forced to leave her family and friends. Can the Mai protect Chloe, or will she be forced into hiding where it is possible she'll never see her loved ones again?
To ensure Chloe is capable of protecting herself at all times, Alek and Jasmine train her every night in order to teach her to trust her instincts when faced with danger. Not only does Chloe have night training, she also notices the development of a new power that leads her to once again put her life in danger for a human. Will Chloe finally realize it is too dangerous to protect her human friends and cut them out of her life, or will she continue to disobey the Mai and be the kind of Uniter she chooses to be?
As if being responsible for the San Francisco Mai wasn’t enough pressure, Chloe meets Nikki and Lilah, who are both members of the South American Mai. The two girls invite Chloe out for a night of dancing, which she accepts, but Jasmine is suspicious of their motives. As their visit continues, Chloe becomes increasingly frustrated with the way Nikki and Lilah view human life, potentially creating a divide between the different Mai prides.
