A searing pain lingered in Kay's wrist. She rubbed it as she woke up. It was wet, and the rustle of dried leaves beneath her told her that she was no longer in the safety of the tent. It was also colder than it had been earlier. Kay blinked at the darkness, reaching to see if the flashlight happened to still be beside her.
Something moaned a short distance away from where she laid. Kay bolted up at the sudden sound.
"Who's there?" she asked, her heart twittering like a bird in someone's tight grasp.
"I'm trying to sleep," a Kristie's slurred voice said after a second. Kay saw movement from where the sound came from and sighed with relief. Kristie had only turned to her other side.
"Outside of the tent?"
During their camping trip, Josh, Kristie, and Kay wake up in a completely different world of forests and permanent darkness. When they meet Quest, a mysterious and cryptic native of Dark Forest, they learn that they are more than human. As they struggle to adjust to their new lives in Dark Forest, the teenagers face everything from death to kidnapping. Will they learn what they have to offer each other or will they face unimaginable horrors and lose their freedom all together?
