Drew has just started her second year on the Isle of Night, and the weather isn’t the only thing changing drastically. She has ascended to the rank of Initiate. She’s also found an intimate love in the handsome vampire Carden. But most important, she no longer dreams of escape. She dreams of vengeance.
Her friend Emma was brutally wounded by the savage vampire Alcántara and may have been taken to the dreaded castle, from which none of the living returns. With so many different stories from so many people with so many of their own deceits and machinations, Drew can’t be sure of anything—except that she must find a way into the castle to discover the truth and take down Alcántara once and for all.
But Drew isn’t the only one out for revenge. Someone very dangerous on the island is also out for blood….

From the diary of Annelise Drew:
January marks the start of my second year on the Isle of Night, and it’s not just the weather that’s changed. I’ve ascended to Initiate. I found a boyfriend, but lost a best friend. And escape, the one thing I’d most longed for, has become the last thing on my mind.
Once, all I ever wanted was to find a way off this cold rock, but now I can’t leave—not until I avenge Emma. Curiosity consumes me. What happened to my best friend after Alcántara attacked her? Did they take her body to the castle? I know I must find a way in and see for myself. I won’t rest until I find out what happened—until I take down the one responsible.
But first, I must endure betrayals and secrets shocking enough to shatter my world…
