After a freak accident that Shelland Conall can't remember, a strange boy with a snarky attitude shows up on her front porch, shocking her with the confession that he's been following her. To make matters worse, this stalker claims to be the one that saved her from her unknown brush with death, and he comes bearing an unthinkable truth: someone close to her has been poisoning her. It's not just any type of poison, but a suppressant disguised as an everyday pill, and it's been specifically crafted to stultify something inside her. The question is, what?
Now Shelland must learn how to decipher between truth and fiction, but how can a girl trust her gut when she can't even trust her own memories? The more she learns about Beck's supernatural life, the farther she falls into this bloody world of magic that she never knew existed. But what happens when a broken vessel tastes her first dose of darkness? Will she be strong enough to break its iron-grip, or will she succumb and pursue a rapid descent into Chaos?
