Angie Smith is headed home to Monahan… away from her dark past, away from her boyfriend, Cypher, who has drawn her deep into a violent web of parties, pills, and pain. She is ready to start a new life with her long-abandoned daughter, Kaya, but she wants to attend one more party, a rave deep in the forest, where she will abandon herself one last time before commiting her life to her daughter.
A thousand miles away, Curtis Loew is looking for a new family. He’s tried to have a family before, but things always seemed to go wrong. People can be so cold. The people Curtis loves, sometimes they don’t love him back. Sometimes they stop talking to him. Sometimes they even die, leaving Curtis alone again.
Curtis is new to Monahan, but the neighbors are kind. He’s spending more and more time with the Smiths, Kaya, and her mentally unstable grandmother, Colleen. Already, they’re beginning to seem like Family. And Curtis, he’s got so much love to give.
Angie never thought that going to the party in the forest would unravel the world around her. She knew Cypher was dangerous, but she never knew he could be so cruel. She never knew that the forest could be so dark.Now Angie has voices in her head that beg her to stop breathing. Now Angie sees shapes that aren’t quite human. Now Angie has a vision in her mind…her daughter, Kaya, floating in the air, with hand-shaped bruises spreading across her throat.
To save her daughter, Angie must find a way home to Monahan. But on the lonely roads, in the dark of night, home has never seemed so far away.
