Now fans of Stephenie Meyer and Melissa Marr have a new author to devour . . .
Zara collects phobias the way other high school girls collect lipsticks. Little wonder, since life's been pretty rough so far. Her father left, her stepfather just died, and her mother's pretty much checked out. Now Zara's living with her grandmother in sleepy, cold Maine so that she stays "safe." Zara doesn't think she's in danger; she thinks her mother can't deal.
Wrong. Turns out that guy she sees everywhere, the one leaving trails of gold glitter, isn't a figment of her imagination. He's a pixie―and not the cute, lovable kind with wings. He's the kind who has dreadful, uncontrollable needs. And he's trailing Zara.
With suspense, romance, and paranormal themes, this exciting breakout novel has all the elements to keep teens rapidly turning the pages.

This dark fantasy involving a werewolf and murderous pixies is more Stephen King than Stephenie Meyer. Sent to Maine after witnessing the death of her beloved stepfather, Zara is drawn into a local mystery: boys are disappearing in the woods. Narrator Julia Whelan ratchets up the tension as Zara begins to hear a voice calling her into the woods as well. Gifted narration gives depth to Zara's character. The listener feels her numbing depression over the death of the man she considered her best friend. With equal ease Whelan communicates her renewed energy and enthusiasm as she comes out of herself, meets a handsome new friend who may be more than he appears, and confronts evil, possibly finding justice in the process.
