In a near future society in which morality is manifested through beauty and ugliness, a young woman will imperil her future and her world to expose the global shadow network that uses its power to play God and control humanity.

A decade ago, Grace Luther's life was changed by the Revelations: the moment when Great Spirit "saved" humanity and transformed the world into a place where pious behavior is rewarded with beauty, and wrongdoing results in ugliness and even death.

Now, at eighteen, Grace knows that everything she believed about the Revelations is a lie--a myth constructed by the government of the Prophets to force its citizens into model behavior . . . and one that led to her mother's death. She is determined to expose the deception and bring down the Prophets, even if it means aligning herself with the resistance, a group she doesn't entirely trust.

After insinuating herself into Prophet Joshua's inner circle, the double agent gets ever closer to fulfilling her mission to destroy his mind-influencing nanotechnology. But a shocking discovery has her questioning her path, and sends her hunting for answers about her past.

Grace isn't alone on this odyssey. Zack, the secretive government agent who is sometimes an enemy and sometimes a friend has been shadowing her every move. Is he protecting her--or hunting her And Jude, her first love, has returned from hiding to aid her--a task complicated by their history.

In a dangerous world filled with lies and betrayals, Grace can't trust anyone. And the choices she makes will either save her friends, the resistance, and the hope of attaining free will--or secure the Prophets' power and ultimate control.

Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "With Sinless (2018), Tarkoff set the stage describing a peaceful, near-future world controlled by powerful Prophets. From a prison cell, Grace Luther continues with the true, untold story of the fateful night that started it all, for better or worse. Six months after refusing an escape to safety, 18-year-old Grace is working inside Prophet Joshua's organization, acting as a double agent for the Resistance. She is not sure whom to trust, having learned neither group is fully truthful, and both are tracking her movements. Nonetheless, Grace takes on a dangerous mission, but when her cover is blown, she must flee to the Resistance home compound. There she discovers a fractured group of religious dissidents intent on returning the world to a pre-Revelation era one full of hatred, violence, and chaos. Grace begins to doubt her choices and beliefs, leading her to take a path she is ill-prepared to handle. Book two in the Eye of the Beholder series is a fast-paced, globe-hopping, dystopian spy novel with religious overtones and a plot that begs for another book.--Lucy Lockley Copyright 2019 Booklist"
