Magical beasts are hunting Alley Ward, a college student with a deadly secret she’s kept hidden for years…
Alley Ward has a secret—the kind of secret that can level a city block. Her plan had always been simple: Complete her medical doctorate and find a permanent cure for her unstable “condition”. But things aren’t simple anymore. Now she’s being hunted by dangerous creatures that can hide among us.
