To my daughter, Hayden Bellatrix Holland, on her eighteenth birthday, I bequeath my family estate, Holland Manor upon three conditions:
Look for the gifts I left at the Manor.
Use my gifts to destroy my darkest secret.
Trust no one where my treasure is concerned, especially the ravens.
Hayden’s getting ready for college, living in Brooklyn, and hanging out with her best friend., Del. But now the past is catching up with her: her mother’s mysterious disappearance a decade ago, her father’s outlandish theories about a lost supernatural race, and Hayden’s own dreams of strange symbols and rituals in the Colorado woods where she grew up.
As soon as Hayden arrives in her hometown, Del in tow, it begins. Neighbours whisper about Hayden’s mother, the boy next door is suddenly all grown-up in a very distracting way, and Hayden feels the trees calling to her. And among them, deep in the woods, Hayden will discover something incredible – something that threatens reality itself.
