With the Prime Destinations body bank destroyed, Callie no longer has to rent herself out to creepy Enders. But Enders can still get inside her mind and make her do things she doesn’t want to do. Like hurt someone she loves.

Having the chip removed could save Callie’s life – but it could also silence the voice in her head that might belong to her father. Callie has flashes of her ex-renter Helena’s memories, too . . . and the Old Man is back, filling her with fear. Who is real and who is masquerading in a teen body?

There has been a horrible war where the US has fell victim to a terrible biological attack, where only the elderly and young have been vaccinated. Callie is forced to make some tough decisions when an offer to rent her young body to an elderly person for a short time comes across the table. This money could save her little brother’s life.

In the sequel the body bank, Prime Destinations, has been destroyed but the chip inside Callie’s head can still be used to manipulate her. Someone doesn’t want Starters and Enders to work together.

Having to protect her brother Tyler and with time running out to find her Father, Callie doesn’t know who she can trust. Especially when anyone could be acting with another’s body, seeing through their eyes.

An interesting read that is well-written and chilling creepy.  I’m not sure I want to read the previous book though, as I am a wuss.
