Nineteen-year-old Glynis Albion isn’t like the others in Darling. With uncommon beauty and a history of sadness and loss, she is as isolated as the remote location in which she resides. The pain of Glynis’s past, coupled with the mystery surrounding the disappearance of her best friend, has left Glynis open to a secret. A dark menace that has been watching and waiting, biding its time, until just the right moment.
Long before Sabelle Sabin became lost to Glynis, she’d been found by another. A being that stalked its way into Sabelle’s heart, compelling her into an otherwordly conflict from which she had never been meant to escape.
Of course, none of this would have mattered were it not for Glynis’s quirky aunt, Libby, whose youthful alchemical interests ultimately thrust her into a confounding world of divination, danger, and deceit. A precarious flirtation that would prove to have immeasurable, unintended consequences.
Unaware of the plights that would befall Sabelle and Libby, Glynis knows only that since she lost them, she’s felt trapped on her family’s land in a self-imposed exile. And while the greatest mystery for most folks in town is the strange lacerations that have been appearing without explanation for countless years on the otherwise healthy residents of Darling, Glynis will soon find that the vision she can no longer trust will draw her toward one of nature’s darker creations, awakening a new understanding of what lies in the shadows.

“Are you sure? I know a couple of guys at the police station. I could-”
“Please Daniel. Just…leave it be.”
Daniel stopped. He couldn’t help but turn away, looking at the small plate of vegetables. Before he knew it, he nodded. “Okay,” he said. “Okay.”
