Black eyes. No emotion. No sympathy. Only emptiness.
Piper McAdams’s life was normal. Career? Check. Boyfriend? Check. Friends? Check. One unsettling run in with a homeless man turns everything from normal to terrifying. She begins seeing…things.
Things she can’t seem to explain or make any sense.
As if things aren’t already getting out of hand, Piper receives news that the only family member she has is dead. She thinks maybe a trip across the country to her hometown will get her away from all the strange events happening.
After a late night accident, Piper isn’t in her hometown burying her loved one. She’s in a town called Hell. All she wants to do is leave, but the people seem to be holding her there for some reason.
A reason she feels threatens her life. Around every corner things become darker and scarier.
Can she escape what is coming for her?

EXCERPT

“Nolan!” I tried to scream, but it wouldn’t come out. It was lodged in my throat. I stumbled back, stopping once I couldn’t see him anymore. Something thumped behind me.
Something was in here with me. Something was in the dark. It had been waiting for me. My back went rigid as an icy drip of water hit between my shoulders and rolled down my spine. My brain froze in utter panic. I couldn’t think.
“I’ve found you.”
Turn around. No. No. No. Don’t turn around. I thrust myself forward, clearing the desk, and headed straight toward the door. I turned the handle and yanked, expecting it to fly open. It stood solid, not budging in the slightest. I beat against the wood, tears scolding my face. No one came. I stopped, my whimpers eating the silence. A shuffling sound moved closer to me from behind. I blinked savagely to stop the tears that blurred my vision. Nothing was in here with me.
I turned around, preparing myself for empty darkness.
The darkness was there. But it wasn’t empty. I wasn’t alone. My fear was correct. A foot from me I could barely make out the shape of the man. I gaped at him, desperately trying to reason how he’d gotten in the room with me. I pushed back against the door so hard pain racked my back.
He stepped closer and blinked, only I was sure he couldn’t see me. His eyes were a milky white.
I thought I had known fear before. But I only thought I had.
This. Moment. This was the definition of everything ever said about pure, blinding fear.
It constricted me. It choked me. It felt as if it were killing me slowly. Unable to move. Unable to breathe. Unable to rationalize a way to fight through this. To my horror, he reached for me. And I let him. He squeezed my upper arm, causing more tears to spring from my eyes.
“Hel—” I choked out. His face changed. Hardening over, cracking in the creases as beads of black liquid sprung from his pores and ran down his cheeks. I stumbled to the side, finally finding the strength to control my body, which broke his hold. “Leave me alone.”
