Isis Blake moved to Ohio to protect her mother from an abusive relationship. She is also hiding her own trauma. She used to be obese but she lost 80 pounds. She is very determined to start fresh and leave the past behind.
She is invited to a party and when she meets Jack Hunter she hates him on site. She ends up punching the "Ice Prince" in the face.
Jack doesn't care about school. He is just cruising until he goes to college. He is super smart and can notice the smallest detail.
When Jack meets Isis he looses his mask for the first time. Finally, he has someone he can play with. The war is on. Battles are named. Jack has a new purpose in life and this is to torture Isis as much as he can.
