After five months of blissful pretending, Sadie and Rayne are practically the couple of the year. At least, according to Sadie's friends at school they are. But she knows the truth. Their feelings are just an illusion. Now, with graduation and college right around the corner, Sadie realizes she can't put off the inevitable any longer. She has to make a choice. Take the easy way out and run away from her problems, as usual, or move forward with courage and discover her own destiny. But when Ash Hastings, the son of the black-eyed man who almost drove Sadie to her death last November and Rayne's supposed best friend, makes an unnerving appearance in Sadie's life again, the path to her future takes an unexpected turn. And this time, Sadie's life isn't the only one in danger.
My mind went from deep slumber to wide-awake panic in less than a second. My eyes sprang open. I struggled to move, but I was anchored to my bed. I tried to scream, but my mouth was clamped shut. My eyes darted around my room, searching the blackness, trying to make sense of the horrible, trapped sensation taking me over. A light glared through the window off a metal object, a blade, pointed directly at my neck.
A rough voice echoed in my ear. “I think you know who this is.”
I blinked with watery lids and found two cold, blue eyes glaring down at me through the dark.
