On his sixteenth birthday, William Hawk awakes like he would on any other morning - a teenage boy focused on girls, cars, and food. But, before he can even finish eating, everything will change. William’s Change Agent III status activates at 12:27 p.m. on his sixteenth birthday,
and, with that, his responsibility to save Earth from evil begins.

Just months before, on her sixteenth birthday, Grace’s Change Agent III status reveals a horrible truth: her malevolent twin brother, Roland, is actually Roivas, the dark master reincarnated. After years of being mistreated by her brother and deemed crazed and dangerous by her family, Grace finally encounters the opportunity to free herself from her brother’s terror and save her planet.

William and Grace must develop their connection with each other and their skills as Change Agents to stop evil from overtaking Earth.

Seven of the ten worlds within the universe have defeated evil, but none have combated Roivas directly. With the help of family, Cy, Sonny, and friends from Earth and beyond, William makes sense of his new, pre-bio memories and overcomes past mistakes to bring Earth toward the freedom of Final Ignition.

When William Hawk turns sixteen, his world changes completely. He ends up receiving strange powers at 12:27 p.m.  because his Change Agent III was activated.  He doesn’t even know what a Change Agent III is, but now he has to help save Earth from this evil. Hawk has to learn how to be this superhero that will have to save humanity. And that is a lot for a sixteen-year-old boy.

“William. Come to me. Grace is here.

I can give her to you. I can give you all the girls you have wanted, all the things you do without. I can free you from your parents’ chains. Everything–I can give you everything, William. Those around you are weak and pitiful creatures there to serve you.

Come to me.”

Then there is Grace. When Grace has her Change Agent III activated, she learns something about her twin brother, Roland. Roland is actually a dark master, who can destroy the world and all humanity in it. Grace never got along with her brother. Roland always was harming her, and all she wanted to do was get away from the hurt.

So Grace runs away and finds William. She sees William as a way to escape her evil brother and help William with saving humanity and the planet.

This book is not only a dystopian, but a romance. William and Grace are brought together under unusual circumstances. Being a Change Agent can be a good thing and a bad thing. The good thing is that they both are able to save the world from total destruction. The bad thing is that they have this huge responsibility to save humanity, and they are only teenagers. The other bad thing for Grace is that she has to try to stop her twin brother. And it isn’t easy to face the boy who has tormented you your whole life. It also isn’t easy fighting your family. But Grace is strong, and with William by her side she can literally conquer anything that comes her way.

I recommend this book to anyone who is looking for a new young adult dystopian after reading Divergent. This book was intense and I am looking forward to the next two novels.
