An Ancient Curse. An Immortal Monster. A Forbidden Love. Seventeen year-old Hope Nicholas has spent her entire life on the run. With her mom, she's traveled from town to town, barely staying long enough to meet anyone, let alone make friends. If she wants to stay alive, she'll have to keep it that way. When her mother is murdered, Hope is left orphaned and alone. Is this the fulfillment of Apollo's curse? Is Hope, too, being hunted? Hope flees again, staying hidden now more important than ever. But learning to navigate mean girls, demigods, and shadow-monsters from the Underworld is nothing compared to enigmatic and persistent new-boy, Athan Michael. In a modern world still ruled by the Greek Gods, being a monster is more than a curse. It is a death sentence.
