«Le braccia della ragazzina erano ripiegate all'indietro in modo strano, ma quando le sollevò? Non era umanamente possibile, eppure eccola là, una ragazzina con le ali!» Questo l'incredibile incontro che sconvolge la vita di Frannie O’Neill, giovane veterinaria che, dopo la morte del marito, si è ritirata in un paesino sperduto nelle Montagne Rocciose. L'unica persona cui ha il coraggio di confessare ciò che chiunque prenderebbe per un’allucinazione è Kit Harrison, un agente dell’FBI che sta conducendo indagini su un intricato caso legato a esperimenti illegali di manipolazione genetica. Dopo la rocambolesca cattura della ragazza alata, i due riescono a conquistarsi la sua fiducia: lei dice di chiamarsi Max e di essere fuggita dalla Scuola. Ma che cos’è la Scuola? E quali spaventosi segreti custodisce?
