Overview

Seventeen-year-old Ember Denning has made an art of isolating herself. She prefers the dead. She spends her days skipping school in old cemeteries and her nights hiding from her alcoholic father at the funeral home where she works. When her father dies, Ember learns her whole life has been a lie. Standing in the cemetery that's been her sanctuary, she's threatened by the most beautiful boy she's ever seen and rescued by two people who claim to be her family. They say she's special and that she has a supernatural gift like them. They just don't know exactly what it is.

They take her to a small Florida town where Ember's life takes a turn for the weird. She's living with her reaper cousins, an orphaned werewolf pack, a faery and a human genius. Ember's powers are growing stronger, morphing into something bigger than anything anybody anticipated. She has questions but nobody has answers. Nobody knows what she is. They only know her mysterious, magical gift is trying to kill them and that beautiful, dangerous boy from the cemetery may be the only thing standing between her and death.

As Ember's talents are revealed, so are the secrets her father hid and those in power who would seek to destroy her. What's worse, saving Ember has put her cousins in danger and turned her friends' lives upside down. Ember must learn to embrace her magic or risk losing the family she's pieced together.
