Elyse knows what it means to keep a secret. She's been keeping secrets her whole life. Two, actually. First, that she ages five times slower than average people, so that while she looks 18 years old, she's closer to 80. The second is that her blood has a mysterious power to heal. For Elyse, these things don't make her special. They make life dangerous.

Uprising continues the story of Elyse, William and the descendants. Elyse has been in hiding for most of her life. Only now she's hiding with William, and she knows who she's hiding from. The Council want a child Elyse and William have yet to conceive, a child who will be the next oracle, and who will provide the final piece to a plan Christoph has been organizing for years.
Lead Council member Christoph is dead by Elyse's hand, and Descendants have begun to emerge, exposing their secret to the world. Some see this as the prophecy come to fruition, but the prophecy caries a heavy consequence. It was never meant to be as peaceful as most had hoped. Humans and Descendants struggle to live together in a world that isn't ready for such a change. Those who glorify the supernatural race believe Descendants truly are the gods they claim relation to.
