Chapter Summaries & Analyses
Evelyn and Tobias stand at a window together, watching the snow fall. She says she’ll negotiate peace with Marcus, and Tobias feels hopeful that things will improve. In the hall, Tobias asks Peter if he still wants to reset himself. He does, so Tobias gives him the serum and watches the Peter he knows disappear.
Evelyn, Tobias, and Peter leave Factionless Headquarters and head toward Millennium Park. There, they meet Marcus and Johana. Evelyn says she has terms for peace. If they accept, Evelyn will turn over her supply of weapons and leave the city forever. In return, Marcus won’t attack or gain control of the city. Those who wish to leave will be allowed to do so, and those who stay will vote for new leaders. However, Marcus will not be eligible for election. Marcus refuses Evelyn’s terms, but Johana tells him that if he doesn’t accept, she will tell everyone that he had the chance for peace but turned it down. Johana agrees to Evelyn’s terms, and the women shake hands. They will gather everyone in the city tomorrow morning and announce the treaty. Tobias leaves to find Uriah’s family.
