When 17-year-old Nikki Harmon moves to Bland, Virginia, she expects her new life will be as dull as the town's name.
But she finds that not everything is as it seems and the forest surrounding her new home holds secrets - one of them being a centuries-old Indian legend, carefully guarded by Adam Black Water, the leader of a pack of boys known as the Keepers.
Nikki will soon discover that the forest holds more magic and danger than she ever dreamed possible, as a killer lurks on the Appalachian Trail. As she searches for the truth, she will unearth the darkest secret of all.
But will she lose her heart? Or will she lose her life?

The plot was good but I think the author gloss over some points . I was like what and since the author didn't clear it up it made part of the story unbelievable to me at certain time. unsure if I will read the next installment.
I will admit I was very reluctant to buy the book however it showed up on my recommended list after reading/listening to Darynda Jones "Eleventh grave in moonlight" loving that series, I thought why not I have nothing else.
Even though the girl was only seventeen, the book read mature. Thank goodness for I'm tired of high drama teen angst which seems to be flooding the sci/fantasy genre, I'm 38 I don't want to hear or read about it lol.
This book is a wonderful, fun read/ listen. The narrator wasn't bad and it was worth the money. enjoy.
