There’s safety in isolation. But when her walls shatter, can this haunted teen build a bridge between ghosts, rebels, and dreamwalkers before the nightmares eat her alive? Haunted 17-year-old shut-in Cole is living on borrowed time after narrowly escaping the eldritch horrors infesting her decaying city once already. Desperate to fit in and fly under the radar despite the rebellious urgings of an obnoxious ghost and her own forbidden fascination with the monster-taken, she virtuously rejects a mesmerizing newcomer's dangerously tempting offer. But she doesn’t count on one last corpse proving her undoing —nor on stumbling across her repressive homeland's darkest secret. Cole needs allies if she wants to survive the night, nevermind expose the unthinkable web of lies she’s just uncovered and take revenge for years of state-sponsored oppression. But it’s not so easy for a girl who’s spent her life suppressing every instinct and desire to take charge, much less trust a bunch of strangers—and if she chooses wrong, her life will be far from the only one at stake. Can she find the strength to take back her long-lost powers and her fate before the nightmares eat her alive?
