Dark Song

Dark Song

Ames Ford has a perfect life–that is, she had a perfect life, until her father is fired and her family has to move from their mansion in Colorado to a slum in Texas. Now her mother won’t stop yelling, her father won’t stop drinking, and her little sister hides with a pillow over her head to drown out the fighting.

But then Ames meets Marc: Mysterious. Experienced. Rebellious. Gun-obsessed. He loves her more than anything, and he won’t let anyone stand in his way where Ames is concerned–especially her parents. And when was the last time they did anything but ignore, dismiss, or hurt her? Ames must now decide just how far she’s willing to go for loyalty, for revenge, and for love and if she’s willing to commit the ultimate betrayal against her family.

Gail Giles, acclaimed author of What Happened to Cass McBride? and Shattering Glass, will have you questioning what you’d do at your breaking point.
