Sophie Cavanaugh is not going to let her freak of a cousin's strange psychiatric condition ruin high school for them both. Not after all the work she's put into cultivating the right look, and friends, and reputation. But then, Sophie sees something so frightening she lets out a blood-curdling scream—and finds herself stuck in a bizarre parallel world where nothing is safe and deadly creatures lurk just out of sight, waiting for her to close her eyes and sleep...forever.
Could this world be real? Or does insanity run in the family...?
In this novella we get into the head of Kaylee's awful, yet entertaining, cousin, Sophie. Sophie is going about life as usual, until she runs into Luca. Well, Luca hits her with a door! Anyway, from that moment on, Sophie's life will flipped upside down. Luca believes she's something more than human, but what? To readers of the series it's fairly obvious by the way Sophia is able to "accidentally" cross both of them over to the Netherworld.
I absolutely loved seeing more of the Netherworld, especially from new eyes. It's amazing and terrible, but I cannot get enough! Now that Sophie knows that the world is not as it seems, and she's something special, maybe she can give her cousin a break? Or maybe not! I'm definitely intrigued by Luca! He's another new student that isn't quite human. He's a necromancer, but not in the way that most people think. What that means, I have no clue, but I'm excited to find out!
