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.
