Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Allie Kim’s fatal allergy to sunlight, XP, still confines her to the night. Now that she’s lost her best friend Juliet to an apparent suicide, the night has never felt darker—even with Rob at her side.

 

Allie knows why Juliet killed herself: to escape the clutches of Garrett Tabor, whom the trio saw committing an unspeakable crime. Garrett is untouchable; The Tabors founded the world-famous XP clinic that keeps Allie and Rob alive and their small Minnesota town on the map.

Allie can’t rest until Garrett is brought to justice. But her obsession jeopardizes everything she holds dear. Not even Parkour can distract her; nothing reminds her more that Juliet is gone. When Rob introduces Allie to the wildly dangerous sport of nighttime deep diving, Allie assumes he’s only trying to derail her investigation... until they uncover the horror terrible secret Garrett Tabor has hidden under Lake Superior.

Synopsis:

Allie Kim is still confined to the night, and always will be, due to her fatal allergy to sunlight. And now she has lost her best friend, fellow XP-sufferer Juliet, who took her own life to escape the clutches of serial killer Garrett Tabor. Garrett's power runs deep; his family runs the clinic that has kept Allie and her XP soul mate, Rob Dorn, alive. Allie's only solace lies in her and Rob's budding romance.

But Allie won't rest until Garrett is brought to justice, and soon her obsession puts everyone and everything she holds dear at risk. With Rob's help, she takes up nighttime deep diving with the same intensity she applied to Parkour, and uncovers the terrible secret Garrett Tabor has hidden under Lake Michigan. But Rob has a secret of his own, as does Allie's mother, as does her closest confidante at the Tabor clinic—all of which plunge Allie toward a startling climax.
