From the journal of Tracer Ronan
She has survived her first year on the Isle of Night. I’ve guarded and guided her as I can, but her trials have only begun.
Foolish, loyal girl–she wants to break into the vampire’s castle, believing it the only way to avenge her friend’s death. But I know these vampires as she does not. I know she cannot survive such a quest. She knows it too, and yet she will not rest until she finds a way into the heart of the keep. Until she sees the truth for herself.
Until she takes down the one responsible.
Can I protect her? Help her? Because if she manages to find her way inside the vampires’ lair, she’ll endure betrayals and discover secrets shocking enough to shatter her world.
Could she survive such a thing? I’ve begun to believe she’s even more powerful than the vampires have anticipated. They think they can fashion her into their weapon, but perhaps they’ll be the ones who’ll suffer. Because if anyone is capable of destroying them, it is her.
She can be as raw and as caustic as life has been to her. She is vulnerable. An open wound. But she is smart and brave and strong.
She should be somewhere else. She belongs at the best of schools, but I push this from my mind. Her fate has loomed over her since the moment of her conception. A single moment in childhood secured her fate.
She goes by Drew, but I refuse to call her this. It is the name of the man she lived with. Not her own.
To me, she is Annelise.
Veronica Wolff is an award-winning, bestselling author with a soft spot for kilts, mountains, beaches, and vampires. Not necessarily at the same time. She lived everywhere from Texas, to Hawaii, to India, before finally settling in Northern California, where she lives with her husband, two kids, and small menagerie of rescued pets.

JUST BECAUSE YOU WORK FOR THE DEAD DOESN’T MEAN YOU WANT TO JOIN THEM.
Drew has just started her second year on the Isle of Night, and the weather isn’t the only thing changing drastically. She has ascended to the rank of Initiate. She’s also found an intimate love in the handsome vampire, Carden. But most of all, she no longer dreams of escape. She dreams of vengeance.
Her friend, Emma, was brutally wounded by the savage vampire Alcántara, and may have been taken to the dreaded castle, from which none of the living return. But there are so many different stories from so many people with so many of their own deceits and machinations, Drew can’t be sure of anything—except that she must find a way into the castle to discover the truth and take down Alcántara once and for all.
But Drew isn’t the only one out for revenge. Someone very dangerous on the island is also out for blood…
