❝ if love strikes you,
let it rattle your bones.
and if it kills you,
so be it.
for death is always invited
in the presence of beauty. ❞
Kyra Marshall never wanted to fall in love.
She never wanted her life to go spiraling downhill when her dad's plane crashed. She never wanted the only motherly figure in her life disappear. She never wanted to be the slave of her stepmother, the scared girl that cowered at every confrontation.
Anderson Layne never wanted a girl.
He preferred to smile weakly at the girls that tried to flirt with him and chase his crime-solving dreams. He never wanted to be popular, or the life that came with it.
They both never wanted to go to that dance. But Anderson had to go, and Kyra got a note.
Go, or face the consequences.
Anderson meets Kyra, a mysterious girl who he is enthralled by. But then disaster strikes, and the dance is left with bright flashing lights and police and searching.
Searching, for a missing girl.
Their only lead is a shattered glass necklace, coated in blood.
He just met her, and she's gone.
But it's more than what it seems to be. There's something darker, something sinister lurking behind Kyra's disappearance.
Something, that, if they're not careful, could get them killed.
