A stranger is hell-bent on capturing Lucy Owens, no matter the cost.
Dubbed “that weird Owens girl” since grade school, Lucy struggled to find her place in the small, New England town she grew up in. Raised in seclusion, her home was full of memories of herancestors. Her grandmother would tell her tales of the women in their line–some inexplicably with the same appearance as Lucy, down to the crescent moon shaped birthmark on the back of her neck.
Among her only friends are two young men, Embry and Gabriel, who claim to be friends of the family. When prom night takes a sour turn, she’s forced to take shelter from a mysterious man amassing an army for the singular goal of abducting her for his dark purposes. She discovers Embry and Gabriel are Gifteds, a subset of humans with supernatural abilities who don’t die until their job is done.
Embry and Gabriel claim their job is to protect Lucy’s line. But as she gets to know them better, she has to wonder, are they there to keep her safe, or to stop the man who’s after her?
