Aside from not knowing where she came from and the feeling of something missing, the other constant in Jaqueline Doe’s life has been the moving back and forth between the orphanage and various foster homes.

Now she’s landed herself another move, this time to the town of Smithfield Virginia, enrolled for a term in the school’s program for troubled city teenagers. Her plan to toe the line, keep to herself, and just see the term through takes a twist when she mysteriously bonds with her mentor and fellow student, the somewhat clumsy yet handsome Ethan Chase.

Together they discover an old journal apparently written by an immortal, with a cryptic prophecy on the first page telling of the Dark Lord’s return. Sceptical of the journal’s authenticity they decide to read through it and decipher the prophecy. As their friendship begins to lean towards romance, they are unaware that one of the evil beings described within the pages is closing in on them.

Unknowingly and with limited time they set themselves on a pathway, one where Jacqueline will get more than the answers to the questions she has been yearning for. However, they will come at a cost and not just for her.

Laura Ferretti was born and raised in the coastal Southwest region of Western Australia.


With a passion for creative writing and avid imagination, she wrote and illustrated her first novel at the age of nine, solely for her family’s eyes. Joining a local writing group, she had three short stories published in their anthology, Death, Despair and Other Happy Endings. Her debut public novel was inspired from the images of a haunting dream.


When she’s not working in finance, spending time with family or writing, Laura can be found swimming or walking along the beach with her partner and their energetic little dog.

    Loved this book. Needs to be made into a movie!
    The Author's vivid style meant there was no part of it that made me want to “skip a page”.
    Couldn’t put it down once I started reading it.
