Mallory's life is falling apart. Her boyfriend was stabbed. He bled to death in her kitchen. Mallory was the one who stabbed him. But she can't remember what happened that night. She only remembers the fear ...When Mallory's parents send her away to a boarding school, she thinks she can escape the gossip and the threats. But someone, or something, has followed her. There's the hand that touches her shoulder when she's drifting off to sleep. A voice whispering her name. And everyone knows what happened. So when a pupil is found dead, Mallory's name is on their lips. Her past can be forgotten but it's never gone. Can Mallory live with that?
Earlier this year, I read Megan's first book, Fracture, and I adored it. It was so beautifully written, and the story was so captivating, that I just couldn't put it down. This one has been on my wishlist since the moment I found out that Megan was releasing a new book! After reading Fracture, how could I not want to read another of her books?
And putting aside the fact that I have already read and loved one of this author's books, this sounds like an incredible read in its own right. It's very mysterious, and I love a story about an unexplained phenomenon - it makes everything so much more frightening, and interesting when everything is finally revealed!
I can't wait for this to be released - there is still a little while to wait (it'll be released in the UK on February 14th 2012), but I have a feeling that the wait will be worth it!
