After her parents' violent deaths, Amber Tesse is still trying to pick up the pieces of her shattered life. Having moved to a new home halfway across the country to escape the ghosts of her past, she's ready for a second shot at normal. All she wants is to worry about surviving pre-calculus, graduating high school, and getting to know the boy next door. But when she starts seeing things that she knows should not exist, and the boy next door turns out to be not so normal, she's forced to question reality -- and her sanity. As her world is turned inside out, Amber is torn between salvaging the remnants of a life she once knew and abandoning her world for another of beasts, blood, and magic.
