I don't know what they know, but you need to prepare..."David's words stayed with Alyssa, though she doesn't remember hearing them, and has forgotten her brush with Death, the in-between, and almost all of her memories of the time that she spent with David. After a year of training, mourning the boy she loved and lost, Alyssa thinks she's ready for anything. She's fast, strong, and fearless. Strange things start to happen, and Alyssa can't trust anyone.
