A tender sacrifice.

"Be careful what you wish for." Ash's voice rubbed inside of Netta's mind, intimate and subtle in sinister, double intent.   "I take pride in making you regret your many wants, desires - Master." 
As a child, Netta had made a wish upon a Monster. It was too late before she realized that not all imaginary friends can be forgotten. And that she was not safe from her boogeyman.  
A Human's lifetime after being disowned from her family, Netta discovers that believing in a dark fairytale may not be the worst fate she could suffer from.
Her people still fear discovery by humans.  Or their destruction, at the hands of the very creatures which they take their power from.  

And the death they once brought to mankind.
Magic is decaying, and the world seems no longer a place for Witches or Monsters.   In this numb cold, Netta discovers that no matter how far she has run from It, she cannot escape Ashwood as much as she cannot run forever away from her own kind.

The only way to survive may be to make a deal with her very personal devil.

There's this one book on this site that pisses me off and I wish I could send this to the writer.

Wow. Wonderful first sentence. "Show, don't tell" has definitely been applied here!
