Audrey Whitticomb has nothing to fear.

Her mother is the superhero Morning Star, the most deadly crime fighter in the Twin Cities, so it's hard for Audrey not to feel safe. That is, until she's lured into the night by something human and not human—something with talons and teeth, and a wide scarlet smile.

Now Audrey knows the truth: her mom doesn't fight crime. She fights Harrowers—livid, merciless beings who were trapped Beneath eons ago. Yet some have managed to escape, and they want Audrey dead just because of who she is: one of the Kin.

To survive, Audrey will need to sharpen the powers she has always had. When she gets close to someone, dark corners of the person's memories become her own, and she sometimes glimpses the future. If Audrey could only get near Patrick Tigue, a powerful Harrower masquerading as human, she could use her Knowing to discover the Harrowers' next move. But Leon, her mother's bossy, infuriatingly attractive sidekick, has other ideas. Lately, he won't let Audrey out of his sight.

When an unthinkable betrayal puts Minneapolis in terrible danger, Audrey discovers a wild, untamed power within herself. It may be the key to saving her family and her city. Or it may be the force that destroys everything—and everyone—she loves.

Quotes & Awards

  • “For those who like a healthy dose of the supernatural in their superhero origin story, this exciting, suspenseful debut is a smart choice. Frenette’s thoughtful character building convincingly sells a myth-heavy story.”


  • “A blink-and-miss-it climax follows some nifty plot twists…Frenette’s debut features a variety of characters and should please readers looking for paranormal without so much romance.”

    " Good teen fiction "

    " This book was really dull in some places. It had some much detail and back story that it drew away from the current story. I just wanted to see how it would end. You know how some endings made the book worth trudging through? Well the ending to this book made me wonder "Why didn't I stop reading this book when I was bored after the first 3 chapters?" The ending was so dumb, not like a cliff hanger, but just plain stupidly rushed! I don't recommend this book even if your bored...it will just make you irritated or put you to sleep. "

    " If you said "I want to read a pretty good YA sci-fi book with a likable female lead who tells the story" I'd say, "here, take this!" It can be funny when it wants to be and suspenseful when it needs to be. This is not a genre that I seek out, so I think that some of my criticisms might be unwarranted. It would be like if I went to an Italian restaurant when I really wanted Indian food and complained about the spaghetti. I'll definitely get the next book in the series when it comes out. "

    " The story line was fairly typical of young adult fantasy right now. I was at least hoping for a good ending, but it was very lack-luster! "

    " Beautiful story! Loved the main character and her friends, and the romance was refreshingly different of what I usually see in YA books. I really liked the love/hate thing going on. "

    " I really liked this book. I felt that the characters were sound,the plot good, and the action fitting.It was a good (for me) weekend read. Will definitely read the 2nd book. "
