With the death of her parents, Claudia Belle has been sent to live with her grandfather. He's the principal of the local high school and shares Claudia's unnatural gift. While she can learn a lot from the man. Her chance passes too fast, when her grandfather is found dead.
Once again, Claudia finds herself in the hands of a new guardian. Along with all these new changes, a new principal has been found to take her grandfather's role over at Milton High. He comes complete with a fancy watch and a nephew named John.
Sparks fly between John and Claudia. He makes her feel safe, but out there somewhere is another connection she feels just as deeply. His name is Quentin and he longs to take Claudia away to his world, to feed off her strength, and make her his pet.
With her entire life changing more quickly than she ever would have imagined, Claudia doesn't know where to turn or who to trust. Can she navigate this new world she's been thrust into?
