Being bitten by a vampire is not what Skye needs on her first day of senior year. She has enough on her plate, with the mystery of her brother's disappearance still an unsolved case. But Eric Scots is hiding more than an undead complexion. He is the monster responsible for a myriad of missing kids. And Skye is his next victim. Swept up in a journey through miles of underground tunnels, Skye and three classmates find themselves trapped in a new world beneath the town of Westwood, where vampires desiccate inside a gothic city and the shadows of ancient monsters roam the crooked Dark Woods. A world where sunlight bleeds from the trees and werewolves emerge under enchanted moonlight. A world that never ends. Before Skye is sacrificed, she is rescued by a handsome, sword-wielding slayer. Alex believes that Skye was carefully selected by the vampires to free their city from a terrible curse. Against the very laws they abide by, Alex and his family agree to shelter Skye in their cottage home deep in the heart of the woods. In order to survive, Skye must remain hidden until the bounty upon her head is wiped clean. But vampires are not the only creatures that dwell Beneath.
