This trilogy is the continuation of the Curse Trilogy. If you've not yet read the Curse Trilogy (Gifted Curse, Forgotten Curse, & Lifted Curse), then Secret Gifts may have parts that are hard to follow.
All grown up and ready to take on life, Aria Banner is facing the world her parents desperately sought to shelter her from. Centuries of oppression caused by the hands of her well-intended but smothering parents has left her with a hunger to prove herself. Just as badly as she wishes to move up in the United, she also wants to find that connection she grew up watching between her mother and father.
Being at war with the Unaligned makes it a little difficult to worry about her romantic life, but sometimes fate has a way of forcing you to pay attention.
Jase Ericson didn't intend to stumble upon the beauty he had only ever heard whispers of. When Aria locks eyes on the secretive full blood, she's instantly entranced - much to her surprise. The only problem is, she doesn't want to go through the same thing her mother once did.
Jase's secretive air makes him mysterious, intriguing, and exciting... until she learns the secrets he holds.
