Am I a murderer?
Because of me, my mother is dead, and now I’m forced to move in with relatives I hardly know in a town that’s barely a pinpoint on the map. Fitting punishment for my crime, I suppose. Thankfully, I only need to suffer here for a year. As soon as I’m eighteen, I can ditch this town and everyone in it. And then I meet him—Trent Halstead. Something intriguing hides beneath his quiet self-assurance and hero hair.
What I don’t know can kill me…
When a rash of unsolved murders leaves two of my classmates dead and several others missing, I begin to suffer from disturbing hallucinations that build to the horrifying image of Trent as a murderous vampire. I must be going crazy. Vampires aren’t real. Right? Wrong! As if all that isn’t bad enough, Trent tells me he’s hiding a lethal secret, besides the whole immortal bloodsucker thing. He’s the not-so-proud owner of an ancient, family curse—no Halstead will ever know true love. Could I be the key to his happiness? Or will I be another casualty?
