Sarah Hudson refuses to believe she’s a witch. She prefers to call it psychokinesis. Sarah has been an outcast since her early teens because of her power. Labeling herself a witch would only make her life even more unbearable. But on the first day of school, a new boy named Zane Miner recognizes her power and decides that he’s going to take her under his wing, whether she likes it not. Since he’s gorgeous and just as powerful as she is, she’s very tempted to let him. But her pull towards another loner threatens her new relationship.
Lash Crossly, a boy Sarah has spent the last ten years sticking up for, has changed in more than one way over the summer. He’s gone from wimpy and weak to strong and hot and he’s determined to change their relationship from friends to something more. But Sarah holds back, either because of Zane or because of the darkness she senses in him. She knows he’s not safe. When he admits that he’s given in to Blutrausch, Sarah is determined to help him overcome his addiction. But when a girl dies she wonders if she’s too late.
As Sarah starts to accept her power she begins to realize that there are many people who would use her and break her into darkness. She must protect herself from her aunt, from Blood lust and from an evil that’s determined to control her. Sarah must turn to her new friends, her father and especially Zane if she’s going to survive the darkness and find the freedom and happiness she’s always craved.
