Jake Reese thinks he’s just a screwed-up high school kid living in a small town isolated in the Arizona desert. Traumatized at an early age by his mother’s sudden death—and believing he might have had something to do with it—he’s allowed his guilt and lack of self-confidence to rule his life.

Hailey is the fiery little redhead that sees Jake as more than a just a good friend. When she invites him as her date to a school function, it brings down the walls he’s built to protect his heart, and sets off a series of events that threaten not only Jake’s life, but that of everyone around him.

The discovery of a portal on the outskirts of town brings Jake face-to-face with death and reveals a closely guarded secret about his mother. No longer is his memory of her the only thing that haunts him. Something evil from her past has escaped through the portal, and nothing will prevent it from trying to steal Jake’s future.

Can Jake overcome his fears to keep Hailey safe? Will the decisions he’s forced to make destroy everyone he knows and loves? And ultimately…is he strong enough to live with those choices?

Jake is just another screwed-up kid living in just another boring, small town. Traumatized by his Mom’s sudden death, and crippled by guilt because he believes he had something to do with it, he lacks confidence and love for himself. His best friend, Hailey, starts to feel romantically toward him, right when strange things start happening around town. Jake discovers a portal outside of the down, that reveals a secret about his mother, and something evil from her past. Jake has to learn to trust himself and his own instincts to keep his family and Hailey safe.

Writing in a clear, distinctive style, this was an unique, compelling read. Hailey and Jake are both intriguing characters – Jake being my favorite – and they go through some immense character development throughout the book. With too many plot twists to count, a few surprises, and an interesting antagonist, this was a more than enjoyable read.
