Allison wants to be a typical teenager. But a missing brother, a beastly stalker and the possibility she's not completely human make her decidedly atypical.
Allison Spencer was no stranger to the paranormal. An animal empath, she was able to sense the feelings of animals. She had never met anyone else with unusual powers and had gotten used to the fact that she was an eccentric in a world of normal people.
Allison lived an otherwise ordinary life and was looking forward to finishing high school in Ocean City. But when her older brother, Logan, disappeared from a small college town, Allison's family moved to the Hollow of Mont Noir, NY to look for him themselves. In addition to leaving behind her home and friends, Allison suddenly had to deal with life in a small town, a strange creature that was stalking her, a new school with cliques and cattiness, parents who were preoccupied with her missing brother, and an illogical fascination with an outcast boy at school.
As Allison settled into her new home, she began to realize that not everything - and everyone - was what they seemed. She soon learned of the existence of supernatural creatures and was faced with a whole new set of questions - and some shocking answers - about herself and her family.
