Darcy Jones doesn't
remember anything before the day she was abandoned as a child outside a
Chicago firehouse. So she isn't surprised that she doesn't recognize
Conn, the new boy at her high school, even though he seems to know
her—or at least know something about her.
What does surprise her
is how quickly she comes to trust Conn, and that he makes her feel both
desire and desired in a way she hadn't thought possible. But his
interest in her is confusing. It doesn't line up with the way he first
looked at her.
As if she was his enemy.
When Conn betrays
Darcy and she is arrested, she realizes that she can't rely on
anything—not Conn, not herself, and not even the laws of nature. Because
this world isn't the only one. Darcy belongs in an alternate world
where the Great Chicago Fire never happened, and deadly creatures called
Shades terrorize the human population.
Darcy needs some answers.
And she hates that the person most able to help her get them is Conn.
It sounds pretty interesting, or interesting enough to the part of my brain that likes urban fantasy/paranormal stories. I only hope it doesn't suffer from a book summary that describes more than the first 50 to 100 pages. :)
