At sixteen Bay-Lee is not your typical girl. She doesn't even try to fit in at school. What's the point when she'll be moving to a new place within a few months?
She's lived her whole life on the run, hiding from monsters.
Then a reaper uses her closet to cross over from the Spirit Realm. It has a message for her. Just when she's about to join her father at his school for hunters she finds out they are dying on their birthdays. Something is killing them, slipping past locked doors, never leaving a trace of evidence, and her birthday is only two months away.
Becoming a hunter isn't exactly her dream come true. She's doing it for her mother, for revenge, for justice. Nothing is going to get in her way, least of all love. Then she looks up into a pair of jungle green eyes and everything changes.

“Or a doppelganger.”
Mud-caked boots landed next to her face in the dirt. She looked past Tyler Beck’s shoulder to see a young man in dusty fatigues, his face painted for war. There was so much dirt in his hair it was impossible to pinpoint the color. The only thing she saw clearly was his eyes, doe brown. He cradled his M16 against his chest and nudged the rock singer with the toe of one boot. “Hey, Nick. The boys and I were wondering if you’re going to join us for battle or lay on top of the pretty girl until it’s over.”
“Not funny. Help me up."
