“Deep, cutting, an intoxicating blend of human and supernatural, of characters scarred by the past, drained by life.”
— Tosca Lee, author of Demon: A Memoir
Struggling to recover from alcoholism, Nina Parker is forced to return to Abbey Hills, Missouri, the hometown she abruptly abandoned nearly two decades earlier. Her unexpected arrival in the sleepy Ozark town catches the attention of someone --- or something --- igniting a two-hundred-fifty-year-old desire that rages like wildfire.
Unaware of the darkness stalking her, Nina is confronted with a series of events that threaten to unhinge her sobriety. As everything she loves hangs in the balance, Nina’s feeble grasp on her demons weakens, leaving her powerless against the thirst.
