About this BookEthan Wate used to think of the small Southern town of Gatlin that he had always called home as a place where nothing ever changed. Then he met Lena Duchannes, a mysterious newcomer who revealed a secret world that has been hiding in plain sight all along. A Gatlin that harbored ancient secrets beneath its mostt-covered oaks and cracked sidewalks. A Gatlin where Lena's family of powerful supernaturals have been marked by a curse for generations. A Gatlin in which impossible, magical, life-altering events happen.
Together they can face whatever Gatlin might throw at them, but after suffering a tragic loss, Lena starts to pull away, hiding secrets in the shadows, which puts their relationship to the test. And now that Ethan's eyes have been opened to Gatlin's darker side, there's no going back. Haunted by strange visions only he can see, Ethan is pulled deeper into the tangled web of his town's history, finding himself caught up in the dangerous network of undergound passageways endlessly crisscrossing the South, where nothing is as it seems.
