What if everything you knew about your family was a lie? What if, when
the lies began to crack, beneath them lay a truth so dark and deep, yet
so compelling, that it pulled you inside?
Ariella Montero is seeking the
true identities of her mother and father—and of herself. She’s been
taught literature, philosophy, science, and history, but she knows
almost nothing about the real world and its complexities. Her world is
one wherein ghosts and vampires commune with humans; where Edgar Allan
Poe and Jack Kerouac are role models; where every time a puzzle seems
solved, its last piece changes the entire picture.When the last piece is
murder, Ari goes on the road in search of her mother, who disappeared
at the time of her birth. The hunt nearly costs Ari her life, and, in
finding her mother, she loses her father. But gradually she uncovers the
secrets that have kept the family apart, and she begins to come to
terms with her own unique nature and her chances for survival.
upstate New York, England, and the American South, The Society of S

options for those who drink blood and face the prospect of eternal
life. A taut, character-driven literary mystery, The Society of S is the
future of vampirism, told in a voice that will haunt you—and make you
think. Download and start listening now!
