Overview

Don't miss the latest gripping, high-stakes thriller from Wattpad sensation Natasha Preston, author of the New York Times Bestseller, The Cellar.

Of course, the dress was white. This is what I'm supposed to die in, I thought. Not many people knew what their last outfit would be.
I pulled it over my head. It fit me perfectly. It had long, loose fitting sleeves, a modest neckline, and waves of material on the skirt. I hated it.
There were no shoes, and I was afraid I'd have to run through the forest barefoot but there weren't a lot of options. Besides, I'd run barefoot over a bed of nails to get away.
"Scarlett, are you ready?" he called.
I looked in the mirror and took a deep breath. Time to fight for my life.

Scarlett Garner doesn't remember anything before the age of four-until a car accident changes everything. She starts to remember pieces of a past that frighten her. A past her parents hid from her...and a secret that could get her killed.

British 16-year-old Scarlett Garner can’t remember her life before age four—not exactly uncommon in itself—but a car accident shakes loose strange dreams about a burning building and a girl named Evelyn, who Scarlett’s parents claim was her doll. Meanwhile, gorgeous new student Noah shows strong interest in getting to know Scarlett. What she doesn’t know is that he was sent by a cult, Eternal Life, which has plans to sacrifice her to gain salvation. Scarlett falls for Noah as planned, but he falls for her, too. Preston’s (The Cellar) story unfolds in chapters that alternate between Scarlett and Noah’s perspectives, clueing readers into Noah’s deception long before Scarlett learns of it. Readers who accept the farfetched premise may still struggle with thinly developed characters, mawkish turns of phrase (“I was hopelessly in love with her—and our love was hopeless”), and dubious decision-making (when Scarlett’s parents finally reveal the truth about her childhood, they do so while Noah, a virtual stranger, is present). Hard to swallow, both as a thriller and a romance. Ages 16–up. (Aug.)
