"You have a choice to make, Anna. If you run we can protect you, but should you choose to stay, there’s no turning back."
After years of estrangement, Anna Kelleher returns to the motel her family runs to make good on a promise to her dying grandma.
Upon her arrival, Anna finds an uncle she barely recognizes, a motel that looks nothing like she remembers, and the one person she needed to see is gone.
She soon discovers that the motel she knew as a child is host to secrets of a world she never imagined. With lives in the balance, her morals in question, and a promise yet to be fulfilled, Anna must choose between abandoning her family for good, or engaging with a darkness far greater than her own past in order to save them.
With precious little time at her disposal, Anna is caught in the middle when evil knocks at the motel door seeking answers and vengeance.

O'Brien's first foray into fantasy is a fantastic success! This was an engaging story full of suspense and intrigue that kept me glued to the pages the whole way through. I was so impressed with how "real" the two dimensions seemed. They were described in a way as to make you feel as if you were toggling back and forth between them with the characters. This book truly took me away to a different place... or two! The characters were complex and interesting and written so as to make you feel like they are people that you actually know and care about. Between the fascination plot, vivid imagery and wonderfully-developed characters, this is a book not to be missed! I am looking forward to the next in the series. *I received a complimentary ARC of this book in order to read and provide a voluntary, unbiased and honest review, should I choose to do so.
