Something sinister has slithered into Spirit.
Seventeen-year-old Bristol Blackburn is still adjusting to life in her new home. In the last six months, she lost both her parents, revealed her psychic abilities to a small, select group, and found the boy of her dreams. Literally.
Payne McKnight has no problem telling Bristol he loves her, but something is stopping her from saying it back. Maybe it's the generations-old feud between their families heating up again. Or maybe it's the vision she has of Payne's grandfather killing the new girl in town.
Worse than that, it could be the ominous black snake Bristol keeps seeing in her dreams. Since it arrived, many have died and the Shadow Creatures have returned to kill her.
You'd think the bright spot for Bristol would be the vision where she's finally able to say those three little words: I love you.
If only she was saying them to Payne....
