Lost, hungry, and exhausted, the small group must rely on their survival instincts as they travel through the forest towards Lake Superior. But the Boundary Waters is vast and unpredictable, and as the days drag on, it becomes clear that the group is no match for what Mother Nature has in store – and time is running out. As they continue to battle the elements, Emma realises that nature isn’t her only threat: there’s one camper who will do whatever it takes to make it out of the Boundary Waters alive.

Adelina Amouteru is a survivor of the blood fever. A decade ago, the deadly illness swept through her nation. Most of the infected perished, while many of the children who survived were left with strange markings. Adelina’s black hair turned silver, her lashes went pale, and now she has only a jagged scar where her left eye once was. Her cruel father believes she is a malfetto, an abomination, ruining their family’s good name and standing in the way of their fortune. But some of the fever’s survivors are rumoured to possess more than just scars – they are believed to have mysterious and powerful gifts, and though their identities remain secret, they have come to be called the Young Elites. Teren Santoro works for the king. As Leader of the Inquisition Axis, it is his job to seek out the Young Elites, to destroy them before they destroy the nation. He believes the Young Elites to be dangerous and vengeful, but it’s Teren who may possess the darkest secret of all. Enzo Valenciano is a member of the Dagger Society. This secret sect of Young Elites seeks out others like them before the Inquisition Axis can. But when the Daggers find Adelina, they discover someone with powers like they’ve never seen. Adelina wants to believe Enzo is on her side, and that Teren is the true enemy. But the lives of these three will collide in unexpected ways, as each fight a very different and personal battle. But of one thing they are all certain: Adelina has abilities that shouldn’t belong in this world. A vengeful blackness in her heart. And a desire to destroy all who dare to cross her.

Because unfortunately, her lovers always pay – with their souls… Thanks to her foul mood over breaking up with bestselling writer Seth Mortensen, Georgina has been so wicked that Seattle’s über-demon, Jerome, decides to “outsource” her to a rival – and have her spy for him in the process. It’s a chilly proposition, since she’ll be exiled to the frozen north, aka Vancouver, leaving Seth and his new girlfriend to turn up the heat. But soon there’s a bright spot… When Jerome is kidnapped, all his immortals, including Georgina, mysteriously lose their powers – meaning there’s nothing to keep her from getting down and dirty with Seth. Except his girlfriend, that is. Georgina will just have to deal with it, plus rescue her boss, contend with Jerome’s amorous rival, and figure out if everyone involved is being played – or all hell will break loose…
