It starts out with with quiet shy teenager, Karla whom gets detention because of her wild best friend. All seems so normal until the popular guy, Paul lets her in on the fact that he likes her and Karla stsrts feeling like she's being followed. One night on an impromptu date out a mysterious guy, Lucas literally bumps into her and her world changes.
Karla wakes up around people she doesn't know with powers she didn't know she had.; told that she died she is scared, confused, and alone. She tries to make heads or tails of her situation and doesn't know if she can trust these people.
Karla finds out she is a shielder and that someone inside her is trying to possess not only her soul but her body. She is drawn to Lucas and begins to rely heavily on him for support, guidance, and comfort. When she finally gets to go back to see her family they have not been seen since her disappearance. She goes looking for Paul, the last person she was with hoping for answers. He does not have any and an attack happens where they have to flee with Paul.
The next attack leaves everyone in shambles not knowing who to trust. Lucas' dad is being possessed by the brother of Karla's possessor and they are destined to fight. This fight leaves Karla's body broken and too much deception to be forgiven. Everyone goes their own way with Karla and Paul heading out in their own to look for her parents.
Karla was a normal teenage girl, somewhat quiet and shy, one who often listened to her best friend rant on and on about her beau dujour whom most recently is Paul. "She is going to be the end of me." was Karla's thought just before she was caught in the wrath of her teacher and sentenced to detention with Paul, the class clown-as Karla so lovingly thought of him. Although while together in detention, she finds that she may be more interested in him than she ever realized. "I can't understand why Sarah would want to be suspended simply so she could get attention from Paul. And I most certainly can't grasp why I keep thinking of Paul." As she starts to let herself enjoy his interest tragedy strikes. "The pain was like venom triggering every nerve in my body to shut down. I can't handle it anymore, " I love you, I gasped into the phone, while tears replaced the rain drenching my face." Her last thought before being thrown into a world she never even knew existed, though maybe she should have, was of relief and fear. "Relief and fear was all that functioned in my mind. Relief to know the pain will go away; fear to know that I'm dying."
After awakening in a strange place with people she had never seen before, except for one- Lucas. He was the one who was there after the accident as she thought she was dying, "My gave was cradled in Lucas's chest; he was embracing me on his arms. My eyesight slowly was taken away from me, leaving me in the dark. I can't breathe." She had feared for her "life and yet, was relieved when it was over." The people who took her in were kind and casting, even though she didn't understand what was going on. One tried to explain, "I know this is a lot for you to adjust to, but you must understand, we don't want to hurt you. We are here to help you, hoping you can do the same in return." Though she couldn't help but think, "Nothing makes sense and I can't imagine where I will find the answers." Fearing the worst and thinking she was kidnapped she tries to make an escape only to find herself head on with more things she didn't understand. Thankfully the ones who took her on were there to protect her. And though she needed answers and they wanted to help her understand the only thing she could think was "Right now I did't want to be told what had happened because I was too scared to hear the answer. My kidnappers had just saved me from some kind of creatures who desperately wanted to kill me." "What is going on? I cried not only from the pain in my nose but from the feelings I had buried deep inside after all that had happened." "Two days ago I would have called him a liar. But after what I saw today-and what I felt when that little girl attacked me, squeezing my throat-I couldn't help but believe him entirely." were Karla's thoughts after finally hearing what was going on. With the new knowledge she had attained all she just wanted "to fall asleep and forget all of this, and wake up to find it all a terrible nightmare." But even sleep couldn't not save her she kept having strange dreams; in one of these stands her uncle came to her starting "Dear Karla, see what happens when you show affection to your prey? You cough your own blood instead of seeing there's."
After not being able to escape and not finding relaxation through sleep she finally decided "This is what I must do, if only to say goodbye to the life I once knew." She would find a way to embrace this new life she was given and do what she had to do to keep living. "Remembering Helena's suggestion, (she) slipped through the hall to the lounge-room in search of a book." This was a start to her new journey where she learned many remarkable things about herself and those around her. "Maybe I am simply trying to avoid the evidence that I too might have the ability of a Shielder. Because of that is proven then I cannot deny the words they speak or the reality of this world I have been dragged into." After coming to this realization done training and practice was in order. "To have created such a beautiful thing from my core...it gave me an unfamiliar sense of belonging." "The invisible wall that comes between us, (she) mused." So happy with herself for doing so well so quickly.
But as fate would have it before she could completely understand what was going on with her new found talents or how to use them properly things took another dark turn. "Is this the woman inside of my head taking over? Is she igniting my feelings with her own?" "Am I a pawn of destruction? Or simply a misguided girl tortured in the night?" These became the kind of questions dancing around in her head especially after having someone tell her, "And I shall wait for your return; knowing it is your body, but not your soul, that you possess." Karla has the weight of the world on her shoulders and a fight to the death faced her. But she pushed forward with her strong will thinking "I can do this; I can confront Paul and find me parents." "And if anyone can help me it will be Lucas: my protector." So she took the next step and after finding Paul she discerned, "I had missed Paul Stuart like crazy without even knowing it. How could I have forgotten his face? I had to touch it to make sure it was real." "I then realized it wasn't just my dreams that I dreaded- it was simply walking down the street doing an everyday normal human thing." Now that she understood her feelings for Paul what did that mean for the way she was feeling about Lucas. As she burdened herself with these feelings she still knew she had to find her parents but that would prove itself to be difficult with the evil that lurked in her way. "I he will truly want to save me after I tell him of this other life I am forced to live. Will Paul still want to protect me when it's not only the Starkorfs I need protection from but myself as well?" "My eyes searched his been eyes; he was just as lost as I was."
The feelings were there in the grasps for Paul and Karla but the evil wasn't about to let things go so easily. "When your true being is that filled with rage and hate, a chain can only hold the power back for so long. When that beast is let out nothing can stand in its way. Not even your soul." "I closed my eyes, ashamed that these 'creatures' that he spoke of were now a part of who I was. I can no longer be scared nor cry. This I must do."
"I must protect those I love- and all other humans- from her kind. I have a gift that enables me to do so: I am a Shielder." She had to become strong not only for herself but everyone else as well, however she did find help "Could he really be going through all these lengths for me? I thought in amazement." And the war ensued giving Karla an epiphany "My childhood has been lost amongst this war, and with it I am entrusted with this curse." As the force of this hit her and the events that had taken place over the past few days became pieces of a puzzle to put together she was left with the words of someone who meant so much to her, "One day we are destined to fight, and when that day happens I will do everything I can to not hurt you."
