In Book One, fifteen-year-old Reggie saved her little brother Henry from the Vours: evil, demonic beings who take souls hostage on the Winter Solstice. In this sequel, Reggie unearths the truth about the Vours and unlocks the mystery behind their reign of terror.
Now, months away from the Winter Solstice, the Vours still haunt Reggie, but only in her dreams, until one night, when an unexpected visitor turns her nightmares into a reality.
When Quinn, a Vour-possessed past crush reemerges in Reggie's life and begs for her help in disrupting the Vours' horrifying plan to enter humans all year round, Reggie struggles with whether to trust a nemesis and find a way to disrupt their plans or turn to her best friend Aaron for help. In the end, she sacrifices her sanity and freedom in order to put a stop to the Vours.
