The darkness came for Kayleigh and chased her far away from everything she’s ever known and loved. Her misfortune leads her to Mirewick, a small town buried in Appalachia’s deep, dark recesses. It’s there that she meets a reluctant ally, Ezra. He’s the only one who can keep her safe, though he is very hesitant to let her in, haunted by the memories of those he’s failed along the way. His secrets hobble him, forcing him to keep her at arm’s length, even though he’s all she has. The two are forced to rekindle Ezra’s old alliances — the ones he tried to bury long ago, along with the secrets of his past. It’s the only chance either has at surviving the sinister forces that nip at Kayleigh’s heels.
Their connection is potent. Instantaneous. Irrational. Kayleigh has clawed her way into Ezra’s veins and forced a heart that had stopped beating long ago to start again. Their relationship is contentious at best, but with every passing moment, he’s forced to acknowledge there’s no escaping her. She’s the tidal wave that drew him under and stole the breath from his lungs. And he’ll stop at nothing to save her.
