Something is killing hikers and mountain bikers in the mountains on the edge of Albuquerque, New Mexico. Sophia Montclaire, a former Los Alamos National Laboratory scientist, is drawn into a deadly task of locating the deadly reptile, but sinister factions vie to control the secret—a secret that is more horrifying than anyone could have imagined.

Nargi's characters are well drawn, and the setting—a desert mountain wilderness near Albuquerque, New Mexico—forms the perfect backdrop as tension builds and mayhem ensues.
What's lurking in the crags and recesses of the Sandia Peak Wilderness? The military's involved, but the investigation is hush-hush. The first girl ever. And the message she delivers is terrifying. For thirty-five girls, the Selection is the chance of a lifetime. The opportunity to escape the life laid out for them since birth. To be swept up in a world of glittering gowns and priceless jewels. To live in a palace and compete for the heart of gorgeous Prince Maxon. But for America Singer, being Selected is a nightmare.
It means turning her back on her secret love with Aspen, who is a caste below her. Leaving her home to enter a fierce competition for a crown she doesn't want. Living in a palace that is constantly threatened by violent rebel attacks. Then America meets Prince Maxon. Gradually, she starts to question all the plans she's made for herself -- and realizes that the life she's always dreamed of may not compare to a future she never imagined. The last time she did, it was an accident, but The Reestablishment locked her up for murder. The world is too busy crumbling to pieces to pay attention to a year-old girl.
The Reestablishment said their way was the only way to fix things, so they threw Juliette in a cell. Now so many people are dead that the survivors are whispering war — and The Reestablishment has changed its mind. Maybe Juliette is more than a tortured soul stuffed into a poisonous body. Juliette has to make a choice: Be a weapon. Or be a warrior. When Ruby woke up on her tenth birthday, something about her had changed.
Something frightening enough to make her parents lock her in the garage and call the police. Now sixteen, Ruby is one of the dangerous ones. When the truth comes out, Ruby barely escapes Thurmond with her life.
