In the eyes of a young girl with a crush, the perfect man exists.
After the events of the last year, she isn’t young or naive anymore. A brutal attack has left nothing but extreme darkness inside her that not even the people who love her the most can mend. A bus ride and a chance encounter have her shadowed path crossing with someone who nurtures the wildness within her as evil ravages her soul and a journey of self-medicating begins. Sometimes, you have to rip apart and tear away at layers of heartbreak and anguish to find a semblance of peace within the future.
Falling into a headspace so dark that there is no coming back.
Sinking into choices so self-destructive that her body, heart, and soul might never heal.
Spiraling down until she becomes her own worst enemy, inflicting further pain.
Pure evil takes away everything that makes her who she is. Cold touches from the hands of strangers and comfort in the form of injecting numbness straight into her veins can’t help her escape. Forget teetering on the edge of the wreckage.
She’s welcoming, inviting, seeking.
Nothing is ever perfect, and the same can be said here.

A war between Vampires is looming. The future of Vamp and humankind rests on my teenage shoulders. And I still need to get a good score on my SATs.
My guardians have done their best to keep me hidden until I grew strong enough to defeat the New Leaders. The same leaders that destroyed our kingdom and imprisoned my father. It is nearly time for me to reclaim the throne and set my father free so he can rule once again.
But now there is another claim to the throne. A prince who hid himself in shadows for centuries. A prince who let me think he supported me.
A prince who let me believe that he loved me.
That betrayal cuts the deepest. We are connected by blood, so I am constantly aware of Maxim, the so-called Rogue Prince. I know he has not yet revealed my location or sent for the New Leaders. I know I am safe from the ultimate betrayal.
But for how long?
Their well-kept secrets are about to unravel.
