Grape can't unlearn what living in Sortilege Falls has taught her. Magic is real. Vampires live among us. And there's a portal in her back yard that leads to another world. A few weeks ago, Grape lived a quiet life with her family in Watts Landing. Now, she's stuck in Sortilege Falls, searching for a way to rescue her brother from the other side of the rift. She's connected to Brad through dreams and what she sees terrifies her. Brad is being tortured into performing magic and, even worse, he's being forced to torture others. Grape hounds the magic folk in town, seeking a way through the rift. Her mother's memory's been stolen. Her new vampire friend refuses to help. Grape must do it all alone. What she uncovers is a whole host of secrets about the town and her own family. And she's not the only one hunting for answers. Time is running out for Brad, but it might be running out for Grape as well.
