"Am I losing my mind?"

Paige couldn't help but question her sanity. What other explanation could there be for her hearing a conversation held barely above a whisper in the back of a classroom full of students? What about coming home to find one of those very classmates lying in wait in the darkness of her home, ready to attack her?

Confused, frustrated and feeling every ounce of her social ostracism, Paige confides in the one person she's always been able to count on: her mom. But when her mom reveals a deeply rooted, unbelievable family secret, Paige discovers her world is filled with more than she ever imagined possible. A world where fairytales live alongside nightmares and secrets are the glue that binds them together. Suddenly no one is who they seem and Paige is faced with more questions than answers. Can she survive in a world filled with creatures scarier than anything she could imagine and where deceit runs as thick as blood? Or will the truth send her over the edge?

I'm really glad I got the chance to review this book. I had no idea I would like it so much.

Paige, the main character, believes she is losing her mind. And how can she not when nothing else in her life makes sense? But when she tries to get to the root of the problem and goes to her mother for guidance, Paige discovers something that changes everything.

Reading this book was a great way for me to get back into the groove of reading, after what has felt like a long time. I loved McQuay's style and the way she brought Paige to life. I can tell this will be a great book series.

Paige goes from the comfort of her life into a world filled with magic and monsters.

The story was lively and entertaining and I found myself really getting into it. While it isn't incredibly long, it is enough for the readers to gain the full enjoyment of this novel.

A definite read!
