Audrey Whitticomb saved her entire city.
Well, kind of. The superhero Morning Star (who just happens to be Audrey’s mom) might have played a small part, and her sidekick, Leon—Audrey’s sort-of boyfriend, who is gorgeous… and frustrating—maybe helped, too.
But after two peaceful months, there is a vicious new threat in Minneapolis. Her name is Susannah, and she’s a Harrower, a demon hell-bent on destroying people like Morning Star, Leon, and Audrey—the Kin. Like others before her, she seeks the Remnant, a Kin girl who has the power to unleash the inhabitants of the Beneath. But to what end?
Audrey already has a ton on her plate: dealing with her best friend Tink’s boy drama, helping her other best friend Gideon figure out his nightmares, and exploring the highs and lows of “dating” Leon. But when she develops a powerful new ability, Audrey seizes on the chance to fight, despite her mother’s protests and Leon’s pleas.
As Audrey gets closer to figuring out Susannah’s motives and tracking down the Remnant, she’ll uncover more than she bargained for. The terrible truth is staring Audrey in the face. But knowing the truth and accepting it are very different things.
“ I stood staring. I heard nothing, not whatever worlds Elspeth was speaking, not the wild drumming of my heart. A hand came down on my shoulder. I registered, briefly, that the hand must belong to Esther, and I jerked away from her grasp. Otherwise I didn’t move.
Adrian St. Croix. My father.” (ARC pg 136.)
“I glanced at his clock and felt a jolt of surprise. We’d left three a.m. well behind us.
‘I should go,’ I said,
But I didn’t leave. I rolled to my side, resting my head on his pillow.
Leon lay back down, facing me. He reached forward, gently tracing his finger across my lips. He smiled. ‘You should go.’
Instead, I closed my eyes. His hand gripped mine. I fell asleep with my fingers laced through his.” (ARC pg 204.)
