Seventeen-year-old Ashling has always been a small-town girl, so when her home life blows up and her mother reacts by whisking her off to Brooklyn for the summer, Ash is forced to leave her simple life on a quiet street behind.
At first, Ashling refuses to leave the apartment – until her cute neighbor, Andy, coaxes her out of her solitude, taps into her creative side, and shows her everything the city has to offer. Ash has no sooner decided to give the city (and other people) a chance when she’s burned again: this time by both her father and Andy.

Step into the Shadows of Umbrae ...
Miri’s world at P.A.W.S. in St. Louis is falling apart. First, Danny is accused of stealing her opapa’s charm, but before he can defend himself, he mysteriously disappears. Miri seeks out Josh for help and advice, but he, too, has gone missing. Then Lilith has a vision – Miri dragged away by wolves. Miri needs answers, answers that she feels sure are hidden in the blank pages of the book of Argentum. With the help of Lilith, she travels to the ancient city of Safed. There, with the aid of a mystical rabbi and an outspoken werecat, her omama’s story is slowly revealed. And Miri uncovers something else, a world hidden deep beneath our own – the labyrinth of shadows also known as Umbrae.
