Except there’s something off with Kale. He wears her shoes in the shower, is overly fascinated with things like DVDs and vases, and acts like she’ll turn to dust if he touches her. It’s not until Dez’s father shows up, wielding a gun and knowing more about Kale than he should, that Dez realizes there’s more to this boy—and her father’s “law firm”—than she realized.

Kale has been a prisoner of …

Book Blurb:

The battle between vampires and wraiths begins…

It’s going to be okay, Lucas, I thought. We’re dead, but we can still be together. Nothing matters more than that. We’re stronger than death. Now nothing else ever has to come between us. You and I never have to be apart again.

To save his life, Lucas has been turned, now he has to deal with the knowledge that he has joined the ranks of the monsters he has been trained from birth to …
