Hogwarts meets The Bourne Identity at Desert Mountain Academy, the covert CIA training school where Nadia Riley's harrowing adventures continue.

At a boarding school that serves as a cover for a CIA Black Ops training facility, nothing ever stays quiet for long. With the trials of first semester behind her, sixteen-year-old Nadia Riley returns to Desert Mountain Academy to complete her junior year with as little drama as possible--but Nadia's very first survival course takes a terrifying turn when she realizes she is being tracked--and her pursuer is none other than ex-recruit and traitor Damon Moore.

In this exciting follow up to Desert Dark, which Booklist noted would be appreciated by Marie Lu's Legend series or James Dashner's Maze Runner trilogy, Dark Divide's heart-pounding plot is woven through the alternate perspectives of a diverse cast of characters. Nadia learns that Damon needs her help to protect someone he loves, and is shocked to find that she's inclined to help him. But how much can she really trust a guy who was once tasked to kill her?
