But what she doesn't know is being a Roanoke girl carries a terrible legacy: either the girls run, or they die. For there is darkness at the heart of Roanoke, and when Lane discovers its insidious pull, she must make her choice...

    This book was a real train wreck but I loved it. It is not the usual kind of book that I read being a love story kind of girl but it was nice to step out and try something different . It had a little bit of everything. A thriller, a who did it with a bit of a dark and disturbing story line which may be a trigger for some people. If you are after a book that once you start you won't want to put down till the very end, this is the book for you.
