Mackenzie has no memory, no plan, and no one to trust, but her decisions will determine the fate of our world.
They took her from her home, hid her past, and erased her memories. They control her life, but Mackenzie isn't helpless. She has a talent for deception and will do anything to protect the other girls at Crayton House. With only her instincts to guide her, Mackenzie begins to uncover the pieces of a frightening mystery.
There are deadly shadows that mustn't be woken in the library. All spider webs must be destroyed. The local high school is way too accommodating. A monstrous creature is hunting one of the girls. An old man vows to destroy them, claiming "Crayton House is a poison that will spread until nothing is left."
It's a dangerous masquerade where no one is who they pretend to be and nothing is what it seems, but no one can play this game like Mackenzie. Only Brandon, the enigmatic son of her guardian, sees through her mask. She needs to turn him into an ally before he exposes her, but she has never come up against him and won.
Then she makes a devastating discovery. The girls look to her for protection, but she may be the greatest threat they have to fear.
