"Dark, twisted, brilliant." -- Madeleine Roux, New York Times bestselling author of Asylum "Stephen is a well-developed character, with the right amount of snark, lust, and angst. Instantly engaging--with plenty of suspense surrounding the town's secret--this supernatural mystery will please fans of Brewer's previous vampire hunter series and new readers." -- School Library Journal "The novel's final pages will surely shock readers: The author takes great glee in not just presenting a great reveal toward the end, but also twisting the knife. Keen-eyed readers may spot the twist, but few will predict just how far it goes. A slick, spooky, chilling mystery." -- Kirkus "A sinister tale of a frightening legend and the power of belief. With an ending that will shock and sadden, Brewer takes readers on a journey of friendship, recklessness, secrets, and betrayal. This is a perfect choice for those who enjoy mystery and suspense with dark and twisted characters." -- Voice of Youth Advocates (VOYA) "Every aspect of this story is just plain creepy--in the best way possible. If you want some teen angst, a hilariously blunt narrator and small-town attitudes with your horror, pick this one up." -- RT Book Reviews, 4 Stars
