Staff Reviews

Our childhood memories often reveal insight to our personalities. Some memories are good and others are bad. For Wyatt, all memories of her father's farm should be burned and left in the past. She intends to do exactly that when her father passes and she is left the rights to his land. But friends from her past are closer than you think and they are hungry for blood. Wyatt is forced to face the skeletons she has buried (literally) in order to save herself and the ones she loves. An eerie tale that left a hollow feeling in my stomach and monsters swirling in my head. A perfect story for those who love magic, chickens, monsters, the dead, and haunting twists.

— Eva

Description

A seductively twisted romance about loyalty, fate, the lengths we go to hide the darkest parts of ourselves . . . and the people who love those parts most of all.

Wyatt Westlock has one plan for the farmhouse she's just inherited -- to burn it to the ground. But during her final walkthrough of her childhood home, she makes a shocking discovery in the basement -- Peter, the boy she once considered her best friend, strung up in chains and left for dead.

Unbeknownst to Wyatt, Peter has suffered hundreds of ritualistic deaths on her family's property. Semi-immortal, Peter never remains dead for long, but he can't really live, either. Not while he's bound to the farm, locked in a cycle of grisly deaths and painful rebirths. There's only one way for him to break free. He needs to end the Westlock line.

He needs to kill Wyatt.

With Wyatt's parents gone, the spells protecting the property have begun to unravel, and dark, ancient forces gather in the nearby forest. The only way for Wyatt to repair the wards is to work with Peter -- the one person who knows how to harness her volatile magic. But how can she trust a boy who's sworn an oath to destroy her? When the past turns up to haunt them in the most unexpected way, they are forced to rely on one another to survive, or else tear each other apart.
