Four Light Clans. One Dark.
Thousands of years ago, the Schrom split off from the Light Clans and became Dark. Their greed for blood consumed them. Their once orange eyes bled to red, and they became one of the demons of legend. And when they die, they do not rest. They haunt. The take. They devour. Their souls become Shadows. Darkness. Death.
Alexia Maria Garda-Martinez was born a monster.
Red hair. Red eyes. Pale skin.
And nowhere to call home.
But after years of foster care and state homes, she has finally found her niche. A family. A promising career. And a life that’s fulfilling.
When a brutal, ritualistic murder hits too close to home in her small, college town of Montville, New York, Alexia is pulled into a world of good versus evil that will have her questioning who she is and whether she really is the freak, the monster so many have thought.
But she is not alone in this fight.
The Schrom and the Shadows are closing in, and Alexia and the Light Clans must stop the darkness at all costs. Will she be able to fight her darker instincts, or will the devil inside of her draw her into its seductive web?
