“You already know my name. You know the shape of me, the way my shadow dances just beyond the firelight. I am the shape that hides under the bed. I’m the cold that seeps into your blood when you think you are alone.”
A monster is waking in Gedeon. While he has slept, the adult world has all but forgotten about him. But the children have not – for what child could forget the bogeyman?
James Fiddick, a young man from Dasdaya, has heard about the creatures that roam the five counties of Gedeon. Up until now, these creatures were little more than stories, but something has changed. The creatures are rising.
One dark night, James is saved from a wraith by Anna, a slave girl. She knows what is stealing the children of Gedeon and she wants his help to stop it. James must choose whether to go back to his ordinary life or follow her to the home of the Brotherhood where he will learn how to hunt the creatures that plague the kingdom.
