Emily is a student at St Ann's International Academy, a prestigious, exclusive private school on the East coast of Scotland. Classes take place between the ancient walls and vaulted ceilings of sixteenth century Gothic buildings, but other than that, it's just like any other school. Or is it?
As a diligent, conscientious student on a hard-earned scholarship, Emily doesn't enjoy hanging out with the other 'rich kids'. She prefers to keep to her small circle of friends and work on articles for the school newspaper. But when she begins to research an ominous secret student society rumoured to have existed at the school for several centuries, she's forced to leave her comfort zone and finds herself caught in a network of intrigues. Students have been disappearing - and miraculously reappearing - from the School for decades. Things get crazy when she meets the mysterious and broody Logan, and after a confusing and patchy night on a yacht, she wakes to find she will never be the same again.
