Eila Walker knows luck is not a friend, so she is downright shocked to inherit a million-dollar Cape Cod home. And yeah, her new town isn't perfect: the cheerleaders are heinous clones, the local undertow can kill ya, and her Great Grams was supposedly fried by lightning in the harbor square. Still, Eila is hopeful her luckless days are in the past . . . until history decides to repeat itself.
When drool-worthy Raef O'Reilly becomes her friendly, yet weirdly protective shadow, Eila thinks life is pretty darn perfect - until she is hauled beneath the waves by an unnatural undertow. Revealing coal-black eyes and iron-like strength as he rescues her, Raef can no longer hide what he is . . . or what she can do. Eila, last of her kind, can supposedly channel the power of human souls, while Raef is more adept at stealing them. Even worse, the legend about her ancestor isn't such a myth, since Eila's grandmother was one kick-butt warrior until her lightning-like power backfired. A power that is written all over Eila's DNA.
Determined to stay one step ahead of a dangerous clan that is hunting her, Raef, along with three unlikely allies, will do all they can to protect her. But as hidden pieces of their brutal histories unravel, Eila begins to understand just what went down in the harbor square and that she may be forced to follow in her grandmother's fearless footsteps to save those she loves.

"Undertow is a great addition to the paranormal genre and a solid start to the Undertow series. With a unique plot, concrete characters and a twist on the paranormal YA books out there Undertow is a front runner in the highly completive genre. Great twist and turn will have readers sucked in and quickly turning pages." - Becca, BS Book reviewers"All around this was a great read. I don't want to give too much away but it has pretty much everything. Forbidden love, paranormal beings, mystery, humor, adventure, and action. I would recommend you give it a try." Andrea, ToxxicJungle.com
"Great book!! The writing was vivid and created great atmospheres and characters. The mystery about Eila, Raef, and the others was top-notch."
"Eila makes the perfect heroine just as Katniss Everdeen did in the Hunger Games. By the end of the book I could see the characters perfectly in my head and could not wait for more."
"It is so much more than a teenage drama, which I had assumed it was in the beginning. Plenty of action, a little comedy, drama, and a love story."
"I could not put this one down!"- The Library Talker
"It's important for you to understand how extreme things can get once you learn who Raef really is and who Eila is. Raef knows his secrets and what he can do. Eila doesn't know what potential she has, and how important she is in the grand scheme of things. The fact that Raef goes against what it is his kind does to people like Eila, makes me love him all the more." - Cynthia, GOODREADS
"I loved it! I have not found any lengths, no downtime. I liked this very dynamic paranormal romance. Can't wait to put my hands on the sequel..."
"It starts fast and never slows down, so it keeps you interested and wanting more."
"I was hooked with the story knowing that something was going on but unable to predict what. When Eila starts to discover what is going on, the story just develops and in no way did I ever find it predictable. I will definitely be checking out the next book in the series, just gutted I will have to wait so long to do so."
"I could not put this one down! Even when I needed to put it down, I had to almost immediately pick it back up. It took mere hours for me to read this entire book and I am truly ticked that Eila's next story won't be published until July 2014."
"I would think that the book was going to go in one direction and then be totally surprised by the outcome. All these twists and turns kept me interested and I literally could not put this book down."
