Where do you run, when what you fear most is the darkness inside you?
In the small town where she lives, Jess is considered a bit of a freak. The outsider with the strange hair. The sad weirdo who can’t get over her mother’s death. The psycho who beat up the biggest boy in school.
She’s worked hard to fit in. To make some friends. To control her grief and her rage. To be “normal” – just an ordinary girl with an ordinary life.
But at the start of her senior year, things begin to unravel.
At night she’s plagued by blood-soaked dreams of terror and suffering. But the blood isn’t hers. Nor is the terror or the suffering.
In the bright light of day, her own thoughts begin to scare her. Because deep inside her
something is stirring.
Something much older than her. And colder. And unmoved by any human feeling.
When she learns she’s the last descendant of an ancient bloodline controlled by an ominous secret Order, Jess doesn’t know who to trust. At school, a group of popular boys is planning to humiliate her. At home, she’s haunted by ancient secrets and dark lies.
Nobody is quite what they seem.
Least of all herself.
