And he may know more about Joan’s past than she does.
The forest beckons.

Nolin doesn’t know why her mother is terrified of the forest— only that is has something to do with her, a cold night, a baby crib, and an open window.

When Nolin stumbles across disturbing details of her mother’s past, she ventures deeper into the mystery of her own identity and learns of violent, ancient creatures who live in the woods.
And that she, Nolin, may be one of them.
