"Would you die, my love? I'm waiting, waiting for you. These ashes turned bone."
After a summer spent reclaiming her sanity and trying to forget the boy she fell in love with—the boy who must not exist, cannot exist, because she knows that he is dead—Abbey returns to Sleepy Hollow, ready to leave the ghosts of her past behind. She throws herself into her schoolwork, her perfume-making, and her friendship with Ben, her cute and funny lab partner, who just might be her ticket to getting over Caspian once and for all.
But Abbey can never get over Caspian, and Caspian has no choice but to return to her side, for Caspian is a Shade, and Abbey is his destiny. They are tied not only to each other, but also to the town of Sleepy Hollow, and to the famous legend that binds their fates—a legend whose dark truths they are only beginning to guess....
"Abbey initially resists Caspian, whose otherworldly status can only cause heartbreak; but as Abbey and Caspian fall deeper in love, they uncover Kristen’s murderer and learn the true meaning of “soul mates.”"
"...Verday manages to provide readers with a different take on paranormal romance in a market flooded with vampires and werewolves. With the raw attraction heating up between Abbey and Caspian as their romance develops and the mystery surrounding Kristin's murder, this book is the epitome of the guilty pleasure." —CHILDREN'S LITERATURE
"A contemplative read touched with the chill of the grave and the longing of the heart."
