It's autumn. It's high school. Will is dealing with unwanted fame while Blue flies under the radar, but for how long?
Will is healing and wishing life would return to where it was at the beginning of the summer—peaceful and fun. Blue, meanwhile, finds that high school life is much more tolerable than she expected thanks to a new friend and a surprise mentor. But deep in the foundation of Westbury, a crack is forming that threatens to undermine everything they've come to take for granted, and ghosts from Blue's past force her into a position where she must decide if it's worth risking her life to stay in Westbury.
"Fabulous, unforgettable, and riveting... A psychological dynamite. Martin's spectacular second installment in the Vox Oculis series blends a haunting mystery with a dash of science fiction. With its sustained suspense, last-minute plot twist, and cliffhanger ending, this YA thriller is a winner."
-The Prairies Book Review
“This is an amazingly well-crafted novel. Raw emotion is laced through its pages. Though Bronco’s disappearance remains somewhat of a mystery … the author enables the reader to follow his voyage west and uncover some unimaginable ties. All the dots that remain unconnected will leave readers more than eager to plunge into the final book of the Vox Oculis trilogy.”
-The San Francisco Book Review
