Audrey Whitticomb has nothing to fear. Her mother is the superhero Morning Star, the most deadly crime-fighter in the Twin Cities, so it’s hard for Audrey not to feel safe. That is, until she’s lured into the sweet night air by something human and not human—something with talons and teeth, and a wide, scarlet smile.

Now Audrey knows the truth: her mom doesn’t fight crime at night. She fights Harrowers—livid, merciless beings who were trapped Beneath eons ago. Yet some have managed to escape. And they want Audrey dead, just because of who she is: one of the Kin.

To survive, Audrey will need to sharpen the powers she has always had. When she gets close to someone, dark corners of the person’s memories become her own, and she sometimes even glimpses the future. If Audrey could only get close to Patrick Tigue, a powerful Harrower masquerading as human, she could use her Knowing to discover the Harrowers’ next move. But Leon, her mother’s bossy, infuriatingly attractive sidekick, has other ideas. Lately, he won’t let Audrey out of his sight.

When an unthinkable betrayal puts Minneapolis in terrible danger, Audrey discovers a wild, untamed power within herself. It may be the key to saving her herself, her family, and her city. Or it may be the force that destroys everything—and everyone—she loves.

    I read a couple of great superhero books last year (I think one was by Carrie Vaughn) and have been kind of bummed that I haven’t found many more.  This sounds really good, nice and dark-ish too.  I haven’t seen it before, just added it to my Goodreads list!

    I love the sound of it, expecially because this feeling safe and protected just to realize that there are things people cannot protect you from.. It’s something almost everyone has to go through, so.. I’m intrigued!

    Oooo this sounds scary! In my head the Harrowers look like the keeping things in ‘The Descent’ if you’ve ever seen that horror film! Those are some freaky creatures!
