After sixteen years of living in Lowell, Zack has everything figured out – the rifts are easy enough to avoid, and he, like every other teenager, knows the stories about the forest and the old military base are made up to scare little kids. He does what he wants – and his paranoid, survivalist brother Fenix has made sure he can handle anything that comes of it. Or almost anything.
When a friendly visit turns into an assassination attempt, they flee into the forest – and everything changes. The people he considers family aren’t who or what he thought they were. Fenix might not even be his brother – but he is the only thing standing between Zack and a group of otherworldly knights who want him dead.
