The Thorn Chronicles Publisher's Summary

Two 16-year-old girls bound by a tragic fate, and even darker secrets.

For Naomi Aren, suffering in silence is the only way to survive the abuse of her cult leader father. Until the day he announces that she has to marry a terrifying bully. Finding a courage deep within herself that Naomi never knew she possessed, she uncovers an ominous secret and awakens a supernatural power that could save the lives of everyone she cares about most.

Sunday Roberts is a powerful Shade who likes to spend most of her days flirting with the boys and showing up late for class instead of studying. But when a close friend unexpectedly goes missing, her priorities drastically shift. Now Sunday is fighting to prove her worth and independence as a future Guardian to everyone - especially her mentor Naomi. Even the temporary loss of her powers won't stop her from protecting her friends, and destroying those who took everything from her.

Together these two young women will have to overcome incredible odds to survive a harrowing ordeal, before their common enemy strikes again.

    Trapped in a dark cult, sixteen-year-old Naomi Aren has lived a quiet, albeit unhappy, life nestled deep in the hills of the Ozarks. With uncut hair, denim skirts, and only roses for friends, Naomi seldom questions why her life is different from other kids at school. Until the day her abusive father, who is also the cult’s leader, announces her wedding. Naomi must marry Dwayne Yerdin, a bully who reeks of sweat and manure and is the only one person who scares her worse than her father.

    When Naomi asks Sunday to do a job for her, Sunday jumps at the chance, only to find out it's in Tombstone, Arizona - where adventure sounds as likely as the town's name. Once there, Sunday pokes around and she finds an organization that threatens not only her, but all female Shades. Determined to prove herself to Naomi, Sunday goes after the group on her own, only to discover that Tombstone might live up to its name after all.
