"It's dark magic brings him back."
Tori Burns and her family left D.C. for claustrophobic
Chaptico, Maryland, after suddenly inheriting a house under
mysterious circumstances. That inheritance puts her at odds
with the entire town, especially Jesse Slaughter and his
family-it's their generations-old land the Burns have
"stolen." As the suspicious looks and muttered accusations
of her neighbors build, so does the pressure inside her, and
Tori returns to the pattern of self-harm that landed her in
a hospital back in D.C. It all comes to a head one night
when, to Tori's shock, she witnesses a young man claw his
way out of a grave under the gnarled oak in her new backyard.
Nathaniel Bishop may not understand what brought him back,
but it's clear to Tori that he hates the Slaughters for what
they did to him centuries ago. Wary yet drawn to him by a
shared sense of loss, she gives him shelter. But in the wake
of his arrival comes a string of troubling events-including
the disappearance of Jesse Slaughter's cousin-that seem to
point back to Nathaniel.
As Tori digs for the truth-and slowly begins to fall for
Nathaniel-she uncovers something much darker in the tangled
branches of the Slaughter family tree. In order to break the
curse that binds Nathaniel there and discover the true
nature of her inheritance, Tori must unravel the Slaughter
family's oldest and most guarded secrets. But the Slaughters
want to keep them buried at any cost.
