Publisher Description

Two brothers. One light, one dark. Ana is drawn to, and afraid of, them both.



With impeccable pacing, Cradit shifts effortlessly between these various points of view, demonstrating superb psychological insight and a compassion for even her most damaged (and frightening) characters. Her talent for creating atmosphere rivals Daphne du Maurier.”- Christopher Rice, New York TimesBestselling Author of The Heavens Rise



“This story will make you fall in love, shock you, keep you in suspense and make you stay up all night (warning) just so you can find out what happens next… tight and masterful.”- Ionia Froment, Amazon Top 100 reviewer



“Cradit's writing is poetic prose.”- Becket, Bestselling Author of Anne Rice’s Vampire Chronicles: An Alphabettery 



Ana Deschanel made a terrible mistake, one that not even her magic can fix. The only chance of protecting all involved is to flee New Orleans for the solitude of the remote North Atlantic.



Summer Island, Maine (population 202) is not the tranquil escape Ana envisioned. The locals are distant and cold, especially her neighbor, the reclusive veterinarian Jonathan St. Andrews. Her only lifeline is the eccentric caretaker, Alex, who conveniently shows up at all the right moments, warning her she’s completely unprepared for a Summer Island winter. As the storm approaches, Ana may soon be cut off from the rest of the world.



After a surprising encounter with Jonathan’s diametrically different brother, Finn, Ana braves the storm to return something he lost, only to slip and fall on the jagged shoreline. The St. Andrews brothers find her in the nick of time, bringing her to their home to ride out the blizzard. 



Ana comes from a family of powerful witches, but her own gift—healing—has never worked when she needed it. As both the storm and Ana’s condition worsen, the St. Andrews brothers learn there are more sinister forces at work, closer than they ever imagined.



With no help from the outside world, they must find a way to protect themselves from both the storm and the growing darkness that looms across the island.
