Sometimes nothing is deadlier than family.
Something strange is happening in Returning City, something dangerous.
Gabriel has never questioned things before. He knows that because he is a revenant like everyone else, he has to fight the not-family and hurt them to keep his own family safe. He has never questioned that the sky is always dark or that hungry things watch him from the forest.
But in Returning City, everyone has secrets.
Gabriel grew up believing that he was the same as everyone else. But now, things are changing. He begins to see strange, monstrous creatures instead of the people he has always known. Struggling to protect his family, Gabriel must turn to a mysterious stranger, but is she only helping him for her own dark purposes?
In order to survive, Gabriel has to become more than he has ever been, and he will have to go against all he has ever known. Soon Gabriel will realize that something dangerous waits for him—his past—and that past holds a secret deadlier than anything he could ever imagine.
This black fire wasn't like the orange ones in the temples. These flames seemed to pull the heat from Gabriel. He shifted uncomfortably as the others stared into the black, inky flames that rippled with ribbons of deep blue and silver.
Gabriel suddenly became very aware of his heart. Of it beating faster and faster. He could feel the blood pumping through him.
Soon, they’d know he was different. But he didn't want to be different. They would understand because they were family, wouldn't they?
