Learn the rules of the game and then play better than anyone else.
Through a Faustian bargain, Edie Kramer has been pulled into the dangerous world of the Immortal Game, where belief makes your nightmares real. Hungry for sport, the leaders are always raising the stakes. To them, human lives are less than nothing, just pieces on a board.
Because of her boyfriend Kian’s sacrifice, she’s operating under the mysterious Harbinger’s aegis, but his patronage could prove as fatal as the opposition. Raw from her deepest loss, she’s terrified over the deal Kian made for her. Though her very public enemies keep sending foot soldiers – mercenary monsters committed to her destruction – she’s not the one playing under a doom clock. Kian has six months, unless Edie can save him. And this is a game she can’t bear to lose.
“[S]hould particularly appeal to fans of Ilsa Bick’s ‘The Dark Passages’ series and Mary Weber’s ‘The Storm Siren’ trilogy. This engaging nightmare will make even mature horror readers check under the bed at night.” ―School Library Journal
