"An intense, powerful novel of love and loss, deception and deliverance."
-Nancy Haddock, national bestselling author of Always The Vampire
Hannah cannot move on.
She pines for Jacob, the boy who saved her life when she drowned, bringing her back from the brink of death by breathing life into her.
But Jacob is gone now, buried.
Levi's love for Hannah burns just as strong. But he knows how much Hannah loved his brother Jacob. He also knows the troubling event that took Jacob out of their lives. And he lives with that lie every day.
So when a stranger named Akiva comes to their community, he carries with him two secrets that will change their lives forever: he is in fact Jacob, whom Hannah had lost. And he is now a vampire.
When passions stir and secrets are revealed, Hannah must choose between light and dark, between the one she has always loved and the new possibility of love. But it's more than a choice of passion; it's a decision that will determine the fate of her soul.
