Late starter Liam Corchoran struggles with college from the beginning. He’s used to a life fueled by books and early morning chores, not alcohol and sex. His roommate is a cocky city kid he couldn't be less interested in, his best friend and family are a hundred miles away, and he’s ever so emo about life in general.
His roommate Gianni Fiorenza never struggles with anything but boredom: the chief difficulty in the life of a vicious, century old vampire. He’d expected this College Experiment to keep him amused for at least a semester, but after a barely month he’s ready to fling himself into lake Erie.
It begins as pure entertainment, a provisional friendship. Then it turns into a challenge. Then something like love, at times indistinguishable from hate. It’s a love story for monsters, and the beginning of something that will affect their lives, families, friends, and world forever.
Which, for a vampire, is a hell of a long time.
In an attempt to escape constant arguing, Jonah Gray wanders away from the family cabin deep in the West Virginia wilderness. But he wanders too far, over the borders to a Faerie land that could only exist in Appalachia.
Faerie-napping, cold knives, underground oppressors, horror stories, and unwilling affections threaten to suck him forever into their desolate Company Town. If they do, he’ll lose himself in every way possible.
You might escape the fae, but you can never go home. Not really.
