In order to rescue her mother, there may only be one optionâ"joining forces with the Fringe, an extremist group, and their young leader whoâs too hot to be bad. Problem is, these revolutionaries arenât what they seem, and the secrets theyâre hiding could be more dangerous than Sienna is prepared for.
