On her eighteenth birthday, Hayden inherits her childhood home - on the condition that she uncover the dark secrets in the Colorado woods that surround it.
Hayden's tried to put her past behind her. She lives in a comfy Brooklyn apartment with her best friend Del. But it's all coming back for Hayden: her mother's inexplicable disappearance a decade before, her father's crackpot theories, and Hayden's own dark dreams of strange rituals in the woods.
Now Hayden and Del must confront the secrets of Hayden's past in a house that holds all the mysteries of her childhood - and might be the last protection against the dark powers in the surrounding woods.
This YA supernatural mystery with dark fantasy elements features a strong female friendship, a sizzling romance, and terrifying plot twists.
