Winner of the Bram Stoker Award: Tom can see ghosts—and that’s the least of his gifts. Now he must harness his newfound magic to save Chapel Hollow.

A drifter trying to hide his extraordinary powers—and find a place where he belongs—Tom Renfield has recently settled in the small Oregon town of Arcadia. But when Laura Bolte gets into his cab, he’s plunged deep into a world of magic he didn’t even know existed.
 
The pair is thrown together by supernatural forces, and Tom learns that Laura is the gifted daughter of an ancient family who lives in the nearby enclave of Chapel Hollow. But the mysterious clan has dark—and dangerous—secrets.
 
If Tom is to have any hope of finding the kinship he’s been looking for, he and Laura must find a way to protect the home of her ancestors and the innocent citizens of Arcadia.
