Fade to Black: The Pain Mage Trilogy: Book One by 

Today isn't Rojan's day. His latest bounty almost killed him three times, his girlfriends all found out about each other and trashed his rooms---and his niece has been kidnapped. Now he's got to use his magic to find her - and there is a good chance it will end up destroying him. 
Rojan follows his niece's trail to the Pit, the underbelly of the city. The Pit was evacuated when the Synth-tox wiped out most of the city's residents ---and a new city was built over it. But what he wasn't told is that the Pit was never emptied. And Rojan isn't the only one using pain magic. And there is more at stake than the life of one little girl.

Everything about Anna’s life is a secret. Her father works for the Branch at the helm of its latest project: monitoring and administering treatments to the four genetically altered boys in the lab below their farmhouse. There’s Nick, Cas, Trev . . . and Sam, who’s stolen Anna’s heart. When the Branch decides it’s time to take the boys, Sam stages an escape, killing the agents sent to retrieve them.

Anna is torn between following Sam or staying behind in the safety of her everyday life. But her father pushes her to flee, making Sam promise to keep her away from the Branch, at all costs. There’s just one problem. Sam and the boys don’t remember anything before living in the lab—not even their true identities.

Now on the run, Anna soon discovers that she and Sam are connected in more ways than either of them expected. And if they’re both going to survive, they must piece together the clues of their past before the Branch catches up to them and steals it all away.
