Danny and his dad have moved around a lot since his mom died. Their latest home, Harvest Cove, feels like the end of the earth to Danny. But he's made friends and even though he knows better, he starts to get attached.
Then, one night on his way home, he's attacked by a beast that doesn't seem to be real. Can't be real. He has only a few memories of the attack, but the blue spot on his hand and the footprints he finds in the snow convince him he may not be hallucinating. Then his friend Howie is attacked by the same creature. Another boy goes missing. And they both start to have nightmares and hear voices.
With the beast still out on the hunt for them, can they find a way to escape?
A great novel with action, suspense, and creepy horror.
