The Battle Within (Beautiful Ones, #2) by Kody Boye
I have failed my duty as a Beautiful One.
War has arrived at our doorstep. The Glittering City is falling. And worst yet: innocent people are dying.
But all does not seem lost. In the midst of the chaos taking place in the city, me and the last of the Beautiful Ones are rescued by a group of people known as The Southern Saints, who some see as terrorists but others as our salvation. Their goal, they say, has always been to fight the South’s cruel practices. But as the Countess threatens to launch a series of bombs that could start a nuclear war, it will be up to the Saints—and through them, me—to take the fight to the government, no matter what the cost.
