The first book in a lush gothic fantasy series for younger readers of Charlaine Harris and fans of Cassandra Clare.

Lena Duchannes is unlike anyone the small Southern town of <st1:city u1:st="on"><st1:place u1:st="on">Gatlin</st1:place></st1:city> has ever seen, and she's struggling to conceal her power, and a curse that has haunted her family for generations. But even within the overgrown gardens, murky swamps and crumbling graveyards of the forgotten South, a secret cannot stay hidden forever.

Ethan Wate, who has been counting the months until he can escape from Gatlin, is haunted by dreams of a beautiful girl he has never met. When <st1:place u1:st="on">Lena</st1:place> moves into the town's oldest and most infamous plantation, Ethan is inexplicably drawn to her and determined to uncover the connection between them.

In a town with no surprises, one secret could change everything.
