For Rory, life after High School is not what she expected. Her dreams of college and a musical career are shattered after her mother leaves unexpectedly, taking the family savings with her. Rory gets a job at a local grocery store, and life becomes mundane -- that is, until she meets Thomas, who is charming, handsome -- and blind. An unfortunate accident leads them to discover that Rory's touch enables Thomas to see -- and from that moment on, they can't stay away from each other.
Rory always knew she was different. But ever since her mother left, life is nothing like what she thought it was. Her world is turned upside down when she discovers an ancient Celtic race known as the Tuatha de Danann living in the woods outside town. Her connection to them is deeper than she knows, and she and Thomas find themselves caught in the middle of a brutal war. When her father is killed, she must conquer her fears and go to the Underworld to get him back. But is she really willing to do whatever it takes to save him, even if it means unlocking the darkest part of herself that she has worked so hard to bury?
