Alex Cabrera is new to Shadow Wood, Pennsylvania. Not that he minded moving from the Sunshine State when there's nothing there to hold him down. Not even the clingy ex-boyfriend who won't stop calling him repeatedly throughout the day.
To Alex, Shadow Wood reminds him of a living Prozac commercial. Strangers smile and wave from their yards, while children blissfully run and play.  The town is unmistakably beautiful, a vibrant, historical community, with a river that runs through its center. 
 If that's not enough to catch Alex's attention, there's also the four beautiful strangers he meets at a bonfire, who will force him to question his worldview.  Little does he know, a connection he shares with one of them, will alter his life forever.
 But not everything in Shadow Wood is as blissful and rose colored as it appears.  A series of storms brewing on the horizon seem to portend something sinister is coming.  And though no one wants to admit it, Alex senses it will be a battle of life or death; good versus evil.  
 And if he's right, what price must be paid?  What sacrifice must be endured?  What losses must be suffered?
