Dani Madison's life is no longer her own. Worst senior year, ever! With each passing day, she struggles to hold onto all that she once knew. As unfathomable revelations come to pass, she knows now it’s wishful thinking that she’ll ever get her old life back. The Nephilim want to take her, the vampires want to kill her, and no matter which side she tries to fit into, Dani has never felt more alone. There’s only one man she wants to turn to as she aimlessly roams the halls of Mapleton Prep, but she can never trust him again. Desperate to cling to the last shreds of her human world, she finds comfort in the arms of her best friend Evan, rejecting Alec’s protests over their kindling romance.
Dani’s desperate to deny her magnetic pull to Alec and his perfect lips. Every day she has to spend with him, the vampire responsible for her pain, is a torture that the devil himself couldn't replicate. Still distraught over the capture of her partner, Eli, Dani's determined to get him back, no matter the cost. A familiar darkness grows inside her, threatening to relinquish control of her instincts, and expose the truth to her friends. If she can’t learn to let the light back into her soul, it will change the course of her destiny. Dani must fight for her strength in order to save her people, but how can she, when nothing is more weakening than the void of a broken heart.
