While struggling with the events of his past, a teacher finds himself thrown into a battle between good and evil, when one of his students seeks help from him. As a result of Jaime coming to him for help, Crockett Grey's life spirals out of control with a fire, jail, abuse, kidnapping, demons, and more.
While, at a couple points in the book, I got a bit confused about which side some of the characters were on, the story moved along at a pace, which held my interest. I do wish there could have been some more 'depth' to some of the characters and their relationships.
Jaimie is just a twelve year-old girl, bumped around between foster homes and relegated to school classes for challenged kids, those lagging in their test scores or with behavioral issues. But her real problem is that she can sense something the other kids can’t—something dark. Something compelling her to run for her life.
And all Crockett Grey wants is to mark the anniversary of his daughter’s death alone.
But when his student Jaimie comes to him terrified, her need for protection collides with his grief, initiating a tangled web of bizarre events that sends them both spiraling toward destruction.
Crockett’s one hope of getting his life back is to uncover the mysterious secrets of Jaimie’s past and her strange gift.
