The woods are lovely, dark and deep. 
              And if you stay awhile, you might espy 
                                             a king of queens, fast asleep. 
    
Fell words and foul deeds abound in the hamlet of Gladtidings. Memories are long and feuds are bitter. The great hourglass of time tick-tocks away, blurring life at the edges. To sixteen-year-old Ginnifer Warren, Gladtidings and its citizens are a stark contrast to the merry life she once lived. Uprooted and planted into the lush backdrop of Gladtidings, she does her best to slink into shadows and avoid the blistering attention of the town's sunniest rays - Henry Foster and Katherine Autry.
    
All in Gladtidings isn't glad, however. There's a name on everyone's lips, and its mate is a word that no one dares utter. Everyone seems in the know - and by that, it means they know nothing at all. The high school is a forgotten pile of charred wood and brick and two of its students have gone missing. As Ginny gets closer to solving the mystery of what happened to them, she meets new friends, old foes, and a destiny that she never wanted.
    
In a race against time, Ginny fights to recover what was stolen from Gladtidings - truth. Her path leads her through winding woods and perilous plots, those who would do her harm always on her heels. But the truth will come at a terrible price, one which Ginny may not want to pay.

I came to this story for the "gothic" in the description, and I wasn't disappointed. Even though this chapter was brief, I could already sense that gothic vibe, which is not easy to achieve. Well done.
