In a city where dreams are deadly, only one girl has the power to end the nightmare. Too bad the monsters got to her first.

When the Mara come, they take everything: hope, desire, the ability to feel . . . the will to defy. Haunted teen Cole’s earliest memories are of learning to wield isolation like a shield, repress her emotions, surrender her doubts, and, above all, obey without question. But all the training in the Towers of Refuge wasn’t enough to save Cadence, the mischievous child who now haunts her . . . and it won’t be enough to save Cole when the Mara come for her.

Still, she’s one of the lucky ones. The Mara don’t take her life. They only devour her dreams, rendering her incapable of disobedience. Or at least, that’s what should have happened. That’s what she clings to during the long, listless days in Refuge. Because if anyone uncovers the truth, she’ll lose what little she has left.

But Cole’s not the only one with a secret—and her life’s not the only one at stake.

Ghosts. Rebels. Dreamwalkers. Cole’s boring, sheltered world will never be the same again—and neither will she. With enforcers in pursuit and the dead invading her dreams, she races from the dazzling, forbidden heights of the tower to the glittering menace of the underground club lurking below the surface of the floodwaters in a desperate bid to stop the dying before the nightmares eat her alive.

Claim your fears. Own your failure. Keep fighting.
