Description

Audrey Whitticomb has nothing to fear. Her mother is the superhero Morning Star, the most deadly crime fighter in the Twin Cities, so it's hard for Audrey not to feel safe. That is, until she's lured into the night by something human and not human-something with talons and teeth, and a wide scarlet smile. Now Audrey knows the truth: her mom doesn't fight crime. She fights Harrowers-livid, merciless beings who were trapped Beneath eons ago. Yet some have managed to escape, and they want Audrey dead just because of who she is: one of the Kin. To survive, Audrey will need to sharpen the powers she has always had. When she gets close to someone, dark corners of the person's memories become her own, and she sometimes glimpses the future. If Audrey could only get near Patrick Tigue, a powerful Harrower masquerading as human, she could use her Knowing to discover the Harrowers' next move. But Leon, her mother's bossy, infuriatingly attractive sidekick, has other ideas. Lately, he won't let Audrey out of his sight. When an unthinkable betrayal puts Minneapolis in terrible danger, Audrey discovers a wild, untamed power within herself. It may be the key to saving her family and her city. Or it may be the force that destroys everything-and everyone-she loves.

Professional reviews

"Amy Rubinate takes Audrey through a time of awakening as she learns the truth about her mother's crime-fighting activities and her heritage as one of the Kin--those who keep the nasty demons, known as "harrowers," at bay. In doing so, she expands on her ability to see into the past and the future, which until now has been of primary use in reading tarot cards for her friends. Rubinate's voice reflects Audrey's growth as her worldview expands and she decides to take a role in keeping the city safe. In addition, Rubinate's portrayals of the story's supporting characters break up the internal monologues, and their interactions provide Audrey with needed support. J.E.M.
