In a city where dreams are deadly, only one girl has the power to end the nightmare. Too bad the monsters got to her first.
When the Mara come, they take everything: hope, desire, the ability to feel . . . the will to defy. Haunted teen Cole's earliest memories are of learning to wield isolation as a shield, repress emotions, surrender doubts, and, above all, obey without question.
But all the training in the Towers of Refuge wasn't enough to save Cadence, the mischievous child who now haunts her-and it won't be enough to save Cole when the Mara come for her.
Because Cole has a secret-and she's not the only one.
Ghosts. Rebels. Dreamwalkers. Cole's boring, sheltered world will never be the same again-and neither will she.
With enforcers in pursuit and the dead invading her dreams, she'll have to find her way from the dazzling, forbidden heights of the tower to the glittering menace of the underground club lurking below the surface of the floodwaters in a desperate bid to stop the dying before the nightmares eat her alive.
Claim your fears. Own your failure. Keep fighting.
A not-quite-alive girl and her not-quite-dead ghost discover trusted authorities lie, allies have their own agendas and even the monsters wear masks in a journey of betrayal, revenge, and finding the power to fight back. Page Turner Award shortlisted YA dystopian dark fantasy for ages 14 and up with echoes of This Savage Song, Places No One Knows, and The Masque of the Red Death for fans of Brenna Yovanoff, Laini Taylor, Victoria Schwab, and Melissa Marr.
